A light plane being flown by a student pilot crashed into a house Monday afternoon in Santa Monica. The man was practicing landings and take offs at the Santa Monica
Airport when he crashed just a third of a mile away from the runway. Federal investigators are now looking into the accident to find out what caused the pilot to crash the single-engine Cessna.
The airplane was bent in two and the wings were torn off, but miraculously the pilot survived and only suffered a broken leg. No one on the ground was injured. Painters working on the house helped the man out of the plane and used a garden hose to put out some small flames.
