Plane crashes into bedroom

A pilot and passenger of a the small aircraft have survived the plane crashing into the roof of a house in Argentina.

Roberto Mendez was taking his afternoon siesta when the plane crashed into his bedroom.

“I got scared and ran out of the room to downstairs. And when I realised a bit of what was happening I went back and saw that a lot of gasoline was coming in and dripping all over.

“So I went back down to cut the electricity in fear of a fire starting. And then I went up and saw the two crew getting out of the small plane and a hole in the roof of my house, which was completely destroyed.”

He added: “All the furniture is broken and there is gasoline everywhere. It was frightening.”

The aircraft took off at a nearby flying club but soon began to lose altitude.

The pilot, 59-year-old Guillermo Thomas, and his passenger, 53-year-old Remilly Molini, were treated for minor injuries and quickly released from a nearby hospital.
