Passenger with no flying experience forced to carry out emergency landing

A passenger with no flying experience in Florida was forced to take control and land a small plane after the pilot became "incoherent" during a medical emergency.

"He was really calm," said air traffic controller, Robert Morgan, of the situation. "He said, 'I don't know how to fly. I don't know how to stop this thing if I do get on the runway.'"

Morgan instructed the passenger on how to fly to the biggest nearby airport, to make things easier when it came to landing. Everyone made it safely.
