A single-engine airplane taking off from Meadowlark Airport lost power and crashed into a Huntington Beach office building Saturday, but the four people aboard suffered only minor injuries when the pilot flew the Cessna through a second-floor window. "If it had been a solid wall, we'd be dead," said passenger William Perry White, 28, of Huntington Beach as he left the scene to drive his wife, Roseann, 29, also a passenger, to the hospital for a treatment of her splinted and bandaged left arm.
