POMONA, Calif. – A pilot made an emergency landing atop a Pomona office park building, east of Los Angeles, late Sunday afternoon.

The crash prompted a multi-agency response from emergency personnel around 4:40 p.m., a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.  They found the plane on the roof of a building at 901 Corporate Center Drive.

 

Two patients were brought down from the roof by aerial ladder; the pilot was transported to a hospital by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department helicopter team, KTLA reported.   The nature of the patients’ possible injuries and their conditions were not immediately known.

It was unknown what prompted the pilot to make the emergency landing.
