(CNN)Plane crashes usually leave debris scattered across the ground, but a crash in rural Minnesota created a different image: a Piper Cub entangled in power lines and dangling upside down — with the pilot inside.

Once the power line was de-energized, pilot Thomas Koskovich, 65, of Shakopee was rescued, the news release said. He was the sole occupant of the plane and uninjured.

“This incident could have been much worse,” Scott County Sheriff Luke Hennen said. “We are grateful the pilot was able to walk away without any injuries.”

    A spokesperson for the FAA said the agency is investigating the crash. Shakopee is about 25 miles southwest of Minneapolis.
