What causes engine failure?

On a small bombardier flight my planes engine shut off while I was on the engine seat coincedently, the other one as well which caused a drop in the altitude which caused me to feel dizzy. The plane glided through the air but it didn't occur to me that it happened after some years . I'm not sure, it was a rough landing but it seemed normal. No one cared.

Thanks for answers. 

I was 22 then and didn't expect that. 

My family is Tamil from Sri Lanka and don't know much about flights or aviation. 


Inside Canada some sights have a double location but both are the same, the other one is located off a map. In the flight the CN tower looked like a Lego piece, no one was in it.

    Almost certainly the engine didn't fail.  When the aircraft nears its destination, the pilots reduce power to establish a  descent to the airport.  Perfectly normal.

    Highly doubt your story.  A twin engine failure is rare but all it means is a crashed aircraft.  The other engine did not fail or the pilots were able to restart one engine and flew the plane to the nearest airport.

      Oh it was towards the skyline of the us Canada border on the water. I must remember it wrong.
