A veteran air traffic controller managed to talk a passenger down to a safe landing after the pilot of a small plane got sick and couldn’t handle the controls.

The plane was off Florida’s Atlantic coast when the passenger used the cockpit radio to make an urgent plea for help, saying — quote -“I’ve got a serious situation here.”

Air traffic controller Robert Morgan says he just had to keep the man calm, point him to the runway and tell him how to reduce the power so he could descend to land
