Three people walked away from a small plane crash in Connecticut, thanks to an aircraft parachute.

The pilot deployed the safety net when the plane experienced engine trouble, and the parachute was able to bring it down slowly.

The Cirrus SR-20 hit some power lines along the way down, which caused one thousand area households to lose electricity.
