A single-engine plane made an emergency landing on St. Catherines Island shortly after 2 p.m. Saturday, Liberty County Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Hodges said.
The pilot exited the plane and called 911. Eastern District Volunteer Fire and Rescue personnel said the pilot told them that he landed in an open field on the island after the engine sputtered. Two other people were on board with the pilot. They were waiting around 4 p.m. for a mechanic to look at the engine.
No injuries were reported.
