Aerial footage of AirTracker7 shows a hole in the roof of the house in the wreckage area. The house is located in the 13000 block of Sheridan Blvd. The homeowner told Denver7 that when the debris hit the house, he was only two feet away from the impact area, so he was going to make a sandwich. He was not injured.
Other debris was seen on the turf field in Commons Park. The police are asking people in the community if they have touched the debris and left it in place.
Heyden Smith shared a photo of a Boeing 777, which shows smoke from the exposed right engine of the plane. The police said that witnesses reported hearing a loud explosion, and then smoke and debris fell from the sky.
Rachel Welte of the Broomfield Police Department said it was a miracle that no one was seriously injured by the fallen wreckage. Commons Park is usually very busy on weekends.
Wilt said: “To be honest, it’s shocking to see how busy this garbage dump and public park is. This is a very popular attraction in Broomfield. We have a dog farm, a lawn, and There is a playground.” “This park is on a day like this. The weather today is not as cold as last weekend. There may be hundreds of people here. Moreover, the fact that we have not received any casualties so far is definitely making me Shock.”
United Airlines stated that they are working hard to take the passengers of Flight 328 to Honolulu in the next few hours.
The police said a team from the National Transportation Safety Board is heading to the area to take over the investigation.
Denver7’s investigation learned from a senior United pilot that passengers are likely to feel the explosion and vibration until they return to DIA. All pilots are regularly trained in these situations. United Airlines pilots conduct simulator training in Denver every nine months.
Until they take the engine apart, investigators will not know exactly what happened. A person familiar with the matter told ABC News that investigators will focus on possible engine failures based on the obvious vibrations and damage to the sealing ring in the video evidence.
