New Zealand pilot's bad day caught on tape

NEW ZEALAND (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - For a pilot in New Zealand, the day just went from bad to worse.

A small plane made an emergency landing on a beach after experiencing engine problems.

The pilot tried to take back off but failed; he hit the water and sand, and the plane went sideways.

The crash did break the propeller and a wing, but the pilot was not hurt.
