WE WANT TO SHOW YOU ONCE AGAIN, AT THE SCENE, YOU CAN SEE A LOT OF POLICE AND FIREFIGHTERS HERE STANDING IN FRONT OF THE TWO HOMES. NO REPORTS OF ANY INJURIES THAT WE HAVE HEARD ABOUT, BUT OBVIOUSLY THEY WILL STILL BE DEALING WITH THAT FOR A LONG TIME AS THEY DEAL WITH TRYING TO GO AHEAD AND PUT OUT THE FIRE DOWN HERE. A LOT OF GRAY SMOKE IN THE AIR. THIS IS REALLY IN A CORNER HERE IN COLONIA, SO WE HAD TO WORK OUR WAY AROUND, WALKING A LOT OF BLOCKS TO GET TO THIS CORNER WHERE WE UNDERSTAND TWO HOUSES ARE STILL ON FIRE. YOU CAN STILL SEE SOME OF THE SMOKE COMING OFF OF THOSE HOMES. THE PLANE CRASHING ABOUT 11:00 THIS MORNING. A VERY ACTIVE AND BUSY SCENE. THE STREET IS COMPLETELY BLOCKED OFF. OBVIOUSLY THIS WILL BE OUT HERE FOR A WHILE, BUT A WHOLE LOT OF CORNERS AND STREETS AROUND THIS AREA. A LOT OF POLICE KEEPING CHECKS ON PEOPLE COMING IN AND OUT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, TRYING TO KEEP PEOPLE OUT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD AS THE SMOKE CONTINUES TO BILLOW FROM THE TWO HOMES INVOLVED WHEN THIS PLANE CRASHED AROUND 11:00 THIS MORNING.

  • 0:48 He said, "usually stuff like this doesn't happen here". Plane crashes aren't like crime where certain areas are more prone to it. Planes can drop out of the sky anywhere.

  • anyone flying in a plane is suicide, I wouldn't ever fly, never believe the idiots that claim that a car is more dangerous it's a big lie, I beg everybody to stop risking your lives, governments are lying about the safety of aircraft because they want to make your money while you dumbell risks your life, we must boycott the whole flying industry, and more important is to boycott every sports Store that's selling guns, boycott them and let them shut down for good, all you stupids Dont understand that human life is most important and anything that puts human life at risk is to be aborted immediately, including all murderers including psychological sickos, it's our responsibility as people to make sure every killer is killed, no second chance, and blessed be from gd the hands who end the life of a killer, the laws are crazy, if we have 100 percent evidence there is no jail, jail is for thieves
