'Get out!' _ 911 tape of plane hitting Fla. store

ORLANDO, Fla. — A man is heard yelling "Get out! Get out!" in 911 tapes from the crash of a small experimental plane into a Florida grocery store that left five people injured.

Emergency dispatch tapes released Tuesday captured the panic as customers fled the store a day earlier. The plane came through the roof of a Publix supermarket in DeLand, about 40 miles north of Orlando.

Three customers were hurt, and two people aboard the plane were hospitalized in Orlando.

Aviation investigators were at the shopping center Tuesday to figure out what went wrong.

The plane encountered problems shortly after taking off from the DeLand Municipal Airport, less than two miles from the shopping center.
