The 22-year-old pilot, Kyle Davis, and his passenger, Joe Surowiec, were not injured in the landing and declined medical treatment, officials said.

The landing of the dual-seat SkyRanger airplane shortly after 10 a.m. was caught on video by Surowiec, a professional videographer, and was posted on YouTube.

The two landed just west of 29th Street Northwest and Davis guided the plane into a parking lot at Brooks Furniture, 2951 Havendale Blvd. N.W., said Polk County sheriff's spokeswoman Donna Wood

"By the grace of God, there wasn't a whole lot of traffic," Davis said. "If there had been traffic on the road and I thought I was going to put people in danger, I would have landed in the lake."
