Johannesburg - Three people survived a light plane crash near Pietermaritzburg on Wednesday morning, paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said a Cessna light aircraft had just taken off from Oribi airport when it began experiencing some difficulty.

"The pilot crash-landed about a kilometre away into a nature reserve," said Banks.

The pilot and two passengers were unharmed.

ER24 and the local fire department attended the scene.

    Derrick Banks is a moron!! What part of the Beechcraft Baron does he think the Cessna is???? BTW, what is the purpose of the file photo - it bears absolutely no resemblance to accident aircraft?

      Relax mate, Banks is a paramedic not a pilot. Does it matter what type of aircraft crashed? the fact is three people survived and that is the good news. Who cares what type of plane it was?
