(HADDAM, Conn.) -- A pilot was seriously injured when his small plane crashed into a cottage in Haddam, Connecticut, Saturday afternoon.
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 pilot, 46-year-old Benjamin Temple of East Rockaway, New York, was airlifted from the wreckage, but is in critical condition.
The Federal Aviation Administration is now investigating the crash.
