The couple suffered minor to no injuries and declined medical treatment, Lieutenant John Faith, of the Brunswick Fire Department, said.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday that the plane was forced to make an emergency landing because it had run out of gas.

Bergen said the FAA is investigating the incident.
