“I can’t believe we just witnessed a jet crash into the Lake Worth neighborhood!” Benne expressed herself in her blog article. “Please pray for not just the people who had to jump/were ejected from their deaths, but also for everyone in the house where it crashed!”
One of the plane’s ejected pilots landed in a nearby neighborhood, while the other’s parachute got entangled on power lines. According to officials, both were rushed to hospitals for treatment, with one in critical condition and the other in serious condition.
At this moment, the identity of the pilots have not been made public, however they were supposedly an instructor and a pupil.
The disaster is thought to have happened during a nearby training exercise, and the crashed plane was a jet used for training. According to ABC 13, the plane took out from Corpus Christi International Airport and was assigned to Training Wing 2 at the Naval Air Station near Kingsville, Texas.
The Tejas Trails community is close to the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth. Due to its proximity to an area where jets take off and land, the military has even labeled the neighborhood as a probable accident zone.
