The pilot of a small aircraft is being treated for minor injuries after he was forced to make an emergency landing in a field in Pitt Meadows on Wednesday.

According to Maple Ridge assistant fire Chief Mike Larsson, emergency crews were called just before 2:30 p.m.

“[He] lost power for whatever reason, had to make an emergency landing, put it down in a field just north of Abernethy Way, just west of 203rd, and put it down in a farming field.”
