1.      On October 11, 2006, a Cirrus Design Sr-20, N929CD, 
operated as a personal flight, crashed into an 
apartment building in Manhattan, New York City, while 
attempting a 180-degree turn maneuver above the East 
River.  The two pilots on board the airplane were 
killed, including the owner of the aircraft, Cory 
Lidle of the New York Yankees.  The second occupant

2.      On December 13, 2005 in Bergenfield, New Jersey, a 
natural gas service line to an apartment building 
broke while excavators were removing an oil tank 
beneath an adjacent parking lot.  The gas migrated 
into the apartment building causing an explosion and 
fire.  Three building residents were killed; four 
others plus a tank removal worker were injured.  The 
apartment building was heavily damaged.  Media
