New Hampshire officials say two people survived the crash of their small plane in a forest in Warner.

Warner officials say the man and woman onboard were taken to Concord Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Sunday night. Their names have not been released.

The American Champion Aircraft crashed Sunday evening near Stewart's Peak.

The Concord Monitor reports that about 70 fire and rescue personnel responded to the 8:30 p.m. call.

Authorities say it took the couple about an hour to find a cellphone in the wreckage and call for help.

Warner Fire Chief Ed Raymond said the plane crashed into heavy trees and broke into several pieces. He said the couple was "extremely lucky" to have survived.

The investigation into the cause of the crash is continuing.
