Posted: Updated:

(WPMI)  Surveillance video captures what some may call a miracle.

A Cessna 421 plane crashes into a tree in Foley, Alabama catches fire, and the pilot walks away with the help of three men who were in the right place at the right time.

"I wanted to help him, I wasn't thinking about me, I was thinking about him," Aubrey Morris said.

Morris says he had just taken a break from putting together a playset for his grandson.

"I was sitting in my office and I heard a crash and when I looked out of the window, limbs were falling and a plane was in the tree," he said.

That's when he saw the pilot open the door.

"All of a sudden I saw the door come open a little bit and I started looking and he opened it and we ran in," he said. "I told him fall out of the airplane don't jump."

"He was rolling around kind of lost basically and came to the tell section and we all three got him out," Bond said.

Bond was also one of those men who ran over to help.

His wife Mandy captured cellphone video after the plane completely went up in flames. Bond says he was outside when it all happened.
