A Florida woman says she was grocery shopping when a small experimental plane crashed into the supermarket's meat department.

Lisa Cordova was one of three Publix customers injured when the plane crashed Monday into the DeLand store, north of Orlando.

Cordova says she was knocked to the floor when the plane crashed through the roof.

She says all the lights went out and customers didn't know what had happened until they made their way through the smoke and got outside.

Cordova says she saw one man trying to extinguish flames on his leg before someone pushed her out of the store.

DeLand police say two other customers remained hospitalized in stable condition.

Officials say the pilot and a passenger aboard the plane also were hospitalized.
