Ethiopia: Small plane crashes in cornfield in Maryland; 4 occupants of the plane escape without injury

BOWIE, Md. — A single-engine airplane crashed in a cornfield near an airport in Bowie and all four occupants escaped without injury.

The Maryland State Police says the crash happened Saturday before 10 a.m. at the Freeway Airport. Officials say the plane, a Cessna Skyhawk, was trying to land when the aircraft veered from the runway and wound up upside down in the cornfield.

The plane is owned by the airport, and officials say the group had rented the aircraft and were on a sightseeing flight.

Maryland State Police identified the pilot as 43-year-old Edwardo Grigsby of Brandywine, Md. His passengers were 38-year-old Tsige Safo of Alexandria, Va., and her son and daughter, 14-year-old Nahom Ebssa and 9-year-old Eban Ebssa.

By the time troopers arrived all four had exited the aircraft.

Thank you ALL for glorifying our God with us who has extended His mercy and saving power to us. I believe He has more blessings and protection in our life (including ALL of you) to complete the work He has individually started in all of us. I believe showing us His savings hands is just a starting miracle and a wakeup call to all of us.

By the great mercy and powerful name of Jesus Christ, our Savior, I survived this plane crash without a single scratch on me! Praise Jesus, our God, our LORD!

Of course his name is above all names that saves us even from eternal death through baptism in Jesus’ name. Acts 2:38

^^^I will “live and declare the works of the Lord.”
