A crane was brought in yesterday evening to help remove a glider from the roof of a Danbury home. Workers secured the aircraft and removed the parachute, which was not deployed, before the crane could lift the glider out of the Golden Hill Avenue house.
A mother and her two young children were watching TV around 6 o'clock Tuesday night when the glider crashed into their house. The pilot suffered minor injuries.
The plane is registered to Thomas Nejame, owner of Danbury-based swimming pool supply company Nejame & Sons. But the pilot has not yet been publicly identified.
The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
