As two little girls sat in their playhouse on a sunny afternoon, a plane that had lost power and was falling from the sky was headed straight for the house next door.
The girls’ mother, Amanda Siefert, was in the family’s garage at 21 Patterson St. when she heard the plane overhead, followed by a crash. She ran from the garage to grab her kids, 8-year-old Allison Siefert and 3-year-old Brooke Siefert.
The girls’ playhouse and the tall trees above it were untouched. But the plane slammed into a rear corner of the house next door, knocked down two electrical wires, and went through a fence, stopping in another backyard, about 70 yards from where the girls were playing.
