California: A small plane on Sunday crashed into a house in southern California killing five people and injuring two others. The two injured were immediately rushed into a hospital.

According to a report, the aeroplane came undone mid-air, while its pieces fell scattered over the house and igniting into a fire. Further, one of the engines fell into the street creating a large hole.

The neighbours, panicked at the sight of flames in the two-storey building, took to the streets.

“It was a boom. It sounded like something exploded. It shook our house,” a person living in the same neighbourhood told the Associated Press.

Notably, four people from the house, along with the pilot lost their lives in the incident.
