(MIAMI BEACH, Fla.) -- A small airplane made an emergency landing on a Miami beach Tuesday just days after a similar incident on the Gulf Coast claimed the lives of two beachgoers.
Miami Beach police tweeted photos of the plane Tuesday, noting that the pilot said he was having engine trouble and landed on the beach before a storm hit.
No one was injured.
On Sunday, a plane making an emergency landing on a beach in Venice, Fla., struck a man and his daughter who were walking along the shore. The father, 36-year-old Ommy Irizarry, was killed on impact. Oceana Irizarry, 9, died later from her injuries.
The pilot of that plane made a distress call to Venice's airport to announce his emergency landing on the beach, and just seconds later made impact on the sand.
