BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The survivors of a plane crash in central Idaho can prove just how close they came to death, with a seven-minute video documenting their harrowing experience, including the bloody aftermath.

One of the passengers, Nathan Williams of Boise, told The Associated Press on Thursday that he and his friends are just four guys who are lucky to be alive.

Williams was filming June 30 when the small plane took off and headed toward the mountain resort town of McCall. The video shows the plane flying for several minutes before descending and slamming into some trees.

The video has drawn national attention after it was recently posted online.

Williams says he suffered a concussion and the pilot, 70-year-old Les Gropp, had a broken jaw, while two others escaped without serious injury.
