A small lightweight aircraft designed to carry only two people crashed into a residential building in Dhanbad district. The pilot and a 14-year-old passenger on the flight were seriously injured and taken to the hospital, according to officials.
The plane took off from Dhanbad’s Barbadda airstrip and crashed into a nearby building just 500 metres away. A technical glitch could have been the cause of the crash, which was fortunately not fatal. However, the precise cause has yet to be determined.
The building where the joyride glider crashed is near Dhanbad’s Birsa Munda Park. According to doctors, both the pilot and the teen passenger were taken to Asarfi hospital and are still in critical condition.
The glider took off around 4:30 PM and crashed into the building shortly after, according to Ashish Yadav, Officer-in-Charge of the Barbadda Police Station. Social media has been flooded with videos and photos of the crash. Before the crash, the inside of the plane can be seen in one of the videos. The pillar of the house where the plane crashed completely destroyed it. As seen in the crash site images, the pillar of the building would have rammed into the sitting area of the glider.
Nilesh Kumar is the owner of the home where the glider plunged to its death. Nobody in Kumar’s family was harmed as a result of the incident, according to him. He claimed that his two children, who were inside playing, narrowly missed being trapped.
Tourists in the city can take advantage of the glider service to enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the sky. This aerial tour has been put on hold following the incident.
