This is so amazing!
WINTER HAVEN, FL—The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is investigating the crash of a single engine airplane that crashed into a Winter Haven home.
The crash, which killed 64-year old pilot James Wagner, miraculously the home’s occupants, as well as the pilot’s trainee, with only minor injuries.
“Shortly after take-off, the plane lost power, and crashed into the residence which was occupied by three people,” the Polk County Sheriff’s Office stated in a press release.
17-year-old Carmelle Ngalamulume was in the bedroom that the plane crashed into, and she became entrapped. Her 20-year-old brother Joel Ngalamulume, who was in the next room, tried unsuccessfully to free her. Their mother, Emerance Ngalamulume, was taking a shower at the time of the crash.
Emerance and Joel were uninjured, but Carmelle was transported to an area hospital in stable condition.
There were three other children (ages 15, 11, and 2) who were playing in the front yard of the home, and they were also uninjured.
“As tragic as this was for Mr. Wagner and his family, this could have been much, much worse,” stated Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. “This crash is an unbelievable scene. NTSB has been contacted, and the FAA has responded to conduct their investigations.”
