3 children and pilot OK after plane flips

Posted: Updated:
MARINE CITY, MI (AP) -

Authorities say a pilot and his three children have avoided injury in the crash of a small plane at a St. Clair County airport.  

The sheriff's office says the 59-year-old pilot told investigators that he was landing his Cessna 172 when a wind gust flipped it Friday at Marine City Airport.  

The pilot and the children -- ages 18, 12 and 10 -- got out of the plane unharmed.

The Federal Aviation Administration has been notified and will investigate.  

The airport is south of Port Huron.
