PORT ORANGE, Fla. (AP) -- Officials say an Illinois couple were rescued after their small plane crashed in some woods shortly after take-off from a private airfield in central Florida.

A Volusia County Sheriff's Office news release says 65-year-old Alan Kanabay and 64-year-old Wendy Kanabay were pulled from the turned-over plane early Friday and taken to a hospital, where they were listed in stable condition.

Authorities say the plane crashed near the Spruce Creek Fly-In community near Port Orange, Florida.
