A Connecticut man survived a plane crash that caught on a security camera with minimal injury.

A security camera captured the moment Manfred Frost, 79, crashed a 1981 Cessna 172 in Plainville. Frost’s plane crashed into a tree in his attempt to land the aircraft. He tumbled out of the plane and into a parking lot near the airport. He narrowly dodged a vehicle in the process.

“I was very fortunate I got out of it without any real injuries,” Frost said. “I’m just so thankful.”

The crash is currently being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration. It has already been determined that the plane suffered a minor leak.

Frost’s crash marks the eighth small plane crash in Connecticut this year. While he thankfully survived, the previous crashes claimed the lives of six.
