Thick pine branches stopped a small plane a few feet above the ground Wednesday, keeping it from crashing and allowing all three persons aboard to walk away without a scratch. "It was pretty hairy," said Luc Coullard, 27, of Montreal, one of the passengers. "I thought I was going to die. Patrick did a real good job." Patrick Borazka, 22, of France, was piloting the rented Cessna 172. The third person on board was Bruno Passera, 22, also a Frenchman.
