Plan entangled in power tower

Crews were planning and working late into the night on Sunday to rescue the occupants of a small airplane entangled in high voltage power lines north of Montgomery Village in Montgomery County, Md.

The conditions of the occupants of the plane were unclear. County fire chief Scott Goldstein refused to specify the conditions, but said authorities were in cell phone contact with them.

Electricity was cut off to almost 90,000 homes and businesses throughout the county after the plane crashed into a Pepco transmission line near Rothbury Drive and Goshen Road, according to utility and rescue officials.

Photographs show the plane seemingly suspended or entangled in or near cabling and the latticework of a tower that supports the high voltage transmission lines. It was not clear how firmly the plane was being held aloft.
