    TWO people have been taken to a hospital after a two-seat plane crashed into the living room of a third-storey apartment outside Washington, D.C.
    Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the plane crashed into the roof of the apartment building in Herndon, Virginia, early Friday after it had electrical problems and its engine cut off.
    Ms Geller says the men were taking infrared photographs for an aerial photography company when they ran low on fuel.
    Ms Geller says the pilot was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. A woman who was in the apartment was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
    The Red Cross is helping nine adults, seven children and pets who had to leave the building.
