Airplane just crashed next to my house in Chandler. At least one person stuck inside. Didn't have any equipment to help. No one had anything to cut her seat belt. Took this seconds after police arrived, then I left. Hope they end up okay. pic.twitter.com/SoHUvEyNT7— Justin Valenzuela (@new001jv) May 10, 2021
