Australian authorities say a small plane crashed into a ferris wheel at a town fair on Saturday.

The plane was left dangling from the ride with its pilot and passenger trapped inside until rescuers got to them.

New South Wales police in the town of Taree, about 250 kilometers northeast of Sydney, said no one was injured in the accident. Two children, a boy and a girl, who were on the ride at the time of the accident were rescued unharmed.

The ultra-light plane, a cheetah S200, will remain on the ride until emergency crews can figure out how to remove it.
