It's been several days since a plane went down in Tucker County, and on Monday, only one of the men who was inside that plane remains in the hospital.
The pilot of the plane, 46-year-old Waseem Haider, remains at Ruby Memorial Hospital in fair condition.
The two other men on board, 48-year-old Shujjat Rathore and 46-year-old Muhammad Paracha were released.
The plane the three of them were on crashed around 12:40 p.m. on Friday near the Windwood Fly-In Resort.
Officials said they think Haider was trying to land the plane, but didn't think there was enough room to make the landing.
That's when he apparently tried to take off again, but couldn't clear the trees.
Reports from the Federal Aviation Administration, and the National Transportation Safety Board haven't been released yet.
As soon as they are, we'll be sure to let you know.
