GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) — Authorities say two people were rescued more than six hours after their single-engine plane crashed and got stuck in some live power lines in Maryland.

The crash caused widespread outages in Montgomery County. Fire Chief Scott Goldstein says responders were able to safely remove both people after disconnecting the lines and securing the plane to the tower early Monday. He says both suffered “serious injuries” from the crash and that hypothermia had set in while they waited to be rescued.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the crash happened around 5:40 p.m. Sunday near Montgomery County Airpark in Gaithersburg.
