Golfers Help Rescue Plane Crash Victims At Bing Maloney Golf Course

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A plane has crashed on the Bing Maloney Golf Course in South Sacramento.

Two people were injured when the small plane crashed at the golf course.

DeAngelo Mack and Michael Dalley saw the crash from the 12th hole, dropped their clubs and ran over to help. They pulled the unconscious pilot free from the crash.

“We made a decision. In case this thing goes up, we’ve gotta get him out of here.”

Wreckage from the plane is in the trees between holes 2 and 7 on the 18-hole course.

The plane is a Piper PA-28, which is a fixed wing, single-engine craft. It is registered to Capitol Flying Inc., a nonprofit based out of Antelope.

The front 9 holes of the golf course will be closed on Saturday, but the back 9 will be open starting at 5 a.m.
