Barenaked Ladies frontman Ed Robertson and all three other passengers walked away from a small plane crash Sunday in rural Ontario, Canada.

Robertson is "really lucky" to have survived the wreck, deputy fire chief Brian Sears told the Intelligencer, a local paper. He added that the singer and three passengers escaped through a window and "didn't even have a scratch."

The incident happened around 12:30 p.m., when the Cessna 206 float-plane went down in some woods soon after take-off from Baptiste Lake, west of Ottawa.
