IMMOKALEE, Fla.- We're getting our first listen to a pilot's frantic 911 call after his plane crashed in a remote Immokalee field on Saturday.
67-year-old Tony Radelat is in serious condition at Lee Memorial Hospital.
It took crews an hour and a half to find him, and he stayed on the phone with dispatchers the whole time.
He called 911 Saturday, when the plane went down and fell on top of him. The purple and yellow ultralight plane was blocking his view of the outside.
He tells dispatchers that he feels weak, and his legs are trapped. After about an hour, officers join in on the call and use a helicopter to try to locate him.
Radelat goes back and forth with officers, telling them when he hears the helicopter circling above him. One hour and 30 minutes later, they find him.
The last words he says on the 911 call are, "Can you get this plane off of me?"
