A light plane has crashed into the bedroom of a house in Argentina, while the owner was sleeping in there. Roberto Mendez was taking his afternoon siesta when the plane came crashing down:

“I got scared and ran out of the room to downstairs. And when I realize 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 the hole in my roof of my house which was completely destroyed. All the furniture is broken and there is gasoline everywhere. And I am just freaked out. I got scared. It was frightening,” Mr Mendez said.

The Star Light LV-X-207 aircraft took off at a nearby flying club but started to lose altitude very quickly.

The pilot, 59-year-old Guillermo Thomas and his passenger, 53-year-old Remilly Molini suffered only minor injuries and were soon released from the local hospital.

Firefighters have blocked off access to the home because the plane crash had caused structural damage and the house could still collapse.

    That must have been quite a shocker. Well, it’s not every day a plane would go through your roof and ceiling, and you’d be left to tell the tale. Well, it seems like the incident could easily be resolved, so here’s to hoping that both repairs and healing were quick and painless!

    Sierra’s right. That’s shocking news. I hope Roberto Mendez and his family are okay. It’s rare to see a light plane crash into the bedroom of one’s house. I feel sorry for them. They should probably install a stronger roof this time. Maybe something along the lines of a metal roof, though I doubt what kind of roof could ever stop a plane crash.

    Luckily for Roberto Mendez and his family, the plane that crashed wasn’t a real jumbo jet. :) Anyway, aside from a metal roof, the family could also install a cedar roof which has a high resistance against tornadoes and hurricanes.

    Man, I wouldn’t want to be the dude taking an afternoon nap only to be frightened by something crashing through my bedroom roof. I would have ran out of my house for safety and still be freaking out. And I wouldn’t care if I was only in my boxers, I mean, my life is important, but that man was calm enough to cut the power. I wonder how’s their roof and house now? Poor man, he must be sleeping in the first floor ever since.
