Video Posted on social media Two snowboards descended together and showed up to the sky – when, seconds later, one of them rolled and rolled to the ground.
The footage appears to show at least one person exiting the plane before hiding behind the trees and hearing an explosion.
Kerry Douratus, who lives in the neighborhood where the plane went down He told NBC News The plane hit a house and drowned it. It was unclear if anyone was home at the time.
It was “like firing out of my window,” said Duradas, 30, who had been shot.
There were rubble on the street, and a winged stick from her neighbor’s garage, she said.
Another neighbor, Kenny Hinds, said he saw a parachute about 20 feet from the house.
“I heard the Bang Bang Bang, and I saw Snowbird go straight down, as I saw it before I left my side of the house,” he said.
“I saw what looked like a parachute about 20 feet above the house. It disappeared from view, and the parachute was not yet fully used – it was still straight and above.”
The plane was part of a cross-country “Operation Inspiration” that began on April 29 in Nova Scotia to boost morale and celebrate first responders and health workers in the midst of epidemics.
