HERNDON, Va. — Two people were taken to a hospital after a two-seat, single engine Cessna crashed into the living room of a third-story apartment outside Washington, Virginia State Police said Friday.

The plane crashed through the roof of the apartment building in Herndon after it had electrical problems and its engine cut off, and came to rest on the living room floor, police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said. The tail of the plane poked through the roof and a window of the apartment appeared to be blown out.
David Ventura, who lives in the apartment with his family, was awakened by the loud crash and said he was shocked to discover a plane in his living room with two men crawling out asking if everyone was OK.

"That's the last thing that is going to come to your mind," he told WRC-TV.

Four adults and two children were asleep in the apartment at the time, Geller said. Ventura told WTTG-TV that one of his two children slept through the crash and had to be woken up.

The pilot was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital with serious injuries, and his passenger's minor injuries were treated at the scene. Ventura said his wife was shaken by the incident and was taken to the hospital, too.

The two men were taking infrared photographs for an aerial photography company, Geller said. They took off from Northeast Philadelphia Airport and were headed to Manassas Regional Airport, but rerouted to Dulles when they ran low on fuel.

The Red Cross is helping about 20 people who were removed from the damaged building.

The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration were investigating.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
