The man inside the home, Norman Hannenbaum, escaped being crushed by only a few feet. He was at home watching television when the ceiling caved in.

"I ran outside and my neighbor hollered to me...he said, 'There's a plane on your roof!'" Hannenbaum said.

The Federal Aviation Administration is now investigating the crash.
