Officials: Pilot who survived Warner plane crash still recovering

The Associated Press

WARNER (AP) — Officials say a Massachusetts pilot who survived the crash of his small plane in a New Hampshire forest is still recovering from his injuries.

David Ralph of Great Barrington, Massachusetts and a woman onboard the American Champion Aircraft were taken to Concord Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Sunday after the plane crashed near Stewart's Peak in Warner.

The Concord Monitor reports that a hospital spokeswoman says Ralph is in fair condition.

Fire officials say the unidentified woman suffered less severe injuries.

Warner Fire Chief Ed Raymond said the plane crashed into heavy trees and broke into several pieces. He said the couple was "extremely lucky" to have survived.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the cause of the crash.
