WATCH: Plane Lands on Sunbather on Beach

A sunbather in Heligoland, an island in northern Germany, is counting his lucky stars after nearly getting hit by a plane.

Pilot Juergen Drucker came within inches of hitting the man when landing his Piper PA-28-181 Archer II.

The Metro further reports Drucker as saying:

‘In my defence I can say that I didn’t see him because he was lying down and I’m just very grateful it worked out well and I didn’t land on him. I don’t want to say any more than that. I fear I will be in for a fine from the Federal Aviation Office but I hope I will be able to keep my licence.’

Luckily no one was hurt.
