Moments after he crashed his single engine plane into the power lines and a transmission tower Sunday Night, the pilot 65 year old Patrick Merkel made a remarkable remarkably calm call to Montgomery county 9-1-1 to ask for help.

Trapped about 100 feet off the ground, their plane dangling from the tower. I'm just concerned about our articulation and the possibility that we could slip out of this tower The 9-1-1 call taker asked about injuries and offered clear directions as first responders began the rescue.
