Narrative:
Three men walked away from a plane crash in the Palo Alto Baylands, CA, Thursday evening after their plane nose-dived and landed upside down, officials said.

The single-engine Cessna 172S apparently lost power as it approached the Palo Alto Airport (KPAO) and crashed in a marsh southwest of the runway at about 8:20 p.m., fire and aviation officials said. One of the three men on board was taken to a hospital with back pain, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.
