ABERDEE, S.D. (AP) - Four people escaped serious injury when a charter plane carrying HKG Architects employees from Aberdeen made an emergency landing near Pine Ridge.

Company President Dean Marske tells the American News that the twin-engine propeller plane registered to Aberdeen Flying Service hit a cold pocket and iced up, forcing it to the ground Tuesday morning in a field near Batesland.

Marske and project managers Mary Jo King and Ron Keller were aboard, along with the pilot. Marske says it took 45 minutes for emergency responders to reach them because of the remote location.

Marske says he suffered a dislocated shoulder, and Keller suffered broken facial bones. King suffered bumps and bruises.

The pilot’s name and condition are unknown. Aberdeen Flying Service declined comment.
