A small plane crashed at 7:00 pm on Kennesaw State University's Kennesaw campus Thursday, police said.
The crash occurred at the intersection of Bartow Avenue and Campus Loop Road, the KSU Emergency Management (OEM) Bureau said in a tweet. The tweet also said that there are no reports of damaged buildings or injuries to KSU students, faculty or staff.
Two people were on the plane, and they were brought to a hospital in a region, OEM said in a later tweet. They were seen sitting on their stretchers and conscious.
Cobb County Fire told Channel 2 Action News that an engine failure resulted in the crash, and passengers were headed for Omaha, Neb., After Charlie Brown Field in Fulton County
The video obtained from Channel 2 seems to show that the plane crashed with a plane tree. It also seems to be a big device that looks like a parachute.
The two survivors of the plane crash were taken to ambulances in an ambulance.

Abby Rodriguez, a KSU student, recorded a video of a survivor of the crash who waved his hand.
"I just thought it was a bridge that collapsed," she told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "We went to the parking lot, and I thought it was an explosion."
Another student, Megan Allen, said it sounded like a deafening boom.
"It almost sounded like the I-75 was going to collapse." It was so loud that it was hard to understand what had happened. The scene is being held for federal authorities to investigate. Part of the campus @KSUOwlNation may be affected and closed. pic.twitter.com/HlmMFVaz7s
