In a freak incident, the door of a small aircraft fell on a house in Yadav Basti of the Lalapet area in Hyderabad.

Fortunately there were no persons on the terrace of the house when the object landed.

According to reports, the aircraft was reportedly flying at a low height of 2,500 feet when it wobbled in the air for a bit first before the door got detached from the body and landed with a huge thud on the terrace of the house of a person named Ganesh Yadav, a local Congress leader.

Yadav was with his family in the house when he heard the explosion-like thud. They all rushed out and to the terrace, to see the 3 x 4 feet window weighing about 20 kg, on it.

On receiving the information, the police reached the spot and seized the door, and informed the concerned officials of Hakimpet. The aircraft belonged to the Telangana State Aviation Academy, and seemed to have escaped unscathed itself but for the loss of a door, with its two pilots, too, safe.

It seemed to have been a close shave for a painter who was on the terrace until just a few minutes before and stepped down for lunch. Yadav also said that a puja at his house scheduled for the day had fortuitously been postponed to the next day, and that if that had not been the case, a lot of lives may have been lost.
