It's not every day that your life is saved by delicious, steamy pockets of junk food.

But that is exactly what happened to one Ohio man who's craving for a Hot Pocket sent him out of his apartment and away from an airplane crash that killed nine people.

Jason Bartley's apartment building burst into flames Tuesday when a twin-engine charter plane crashed into it. He would have normally been home at the time, but he had left to the store to buy some Hot Pockets.

"Really, I guess it was dumb luck," Bartley told NBC News.

Others nearby were lucky as well.

A teen who lived in the same apartment complex as the crash inadvertently captured the sound of the crash while she was filming a Snapchat video.

She lived in one of two apartment buildings at the complex that were not affected.

A GoFundMe has been set up for Bartley who only has his car and the clothes he was wearing at the time.

No one was in the 4-unit building at the time of the crash.

A fiery airplane crash in Ohio that killed all nine passengers on board was captured by one teen who just happened to be on Snapchat at the same time.

Paige McVeigh was in her Akron apartment when she captured and tweeted her reaction to the plane crash, which happened in another part of the complex she lives in.

The teen can be seen hearing a loud noise, looking toward a bright light and yelling "Oh my God!" before the video ends.

WJW reports that the small airplane crashed about two miles away from Akron Fulton International Airport.

All nine people on board, two pilots and seven passengers, died on impact. No one was in the portion of the apartment building that was hit at the time of the crash.

Crash split car in half and man survives with no life threatening injuries.

Don't ever split a cab with this guy.

Get it?????????????????

Local Florida news channel WFLA says a 20-year-old suffered 'non life-threatening' injuries when he destroyed a car in just about the most complete way possible.

Winter Haven Police say the crash happened Tuesday just before 7 p.m. when Carlos Pino, 20, was traveling westbound along Cypress Gardens Blvd. At the curve near Interlochen Blvd., police say Pino lost control of his silver 1986 Nissan 300ZX and started to slide on the wet roadways as he negotiated the curve.

Pino overcorrected losing control of the vehicle and he started to skid sideways. Ultimately, the vehicle left the roadway striking a tree with the driver's side front wheel and quarter panel. The impact of the crash caused the vehicle to split in two with the front engine compartment on one side of the tree and the vehicle's cab with Pino buckled in coming to a rest on the opposite side of the tree. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash.

I mean, just look at this nonsense.

I feel like I have life-threatening injuries just looking at these pictures.

We have a word of warning for Mr. Pino:

Don't trust anyone who calls themselves 'Mr. Glass'.

While you were dusting off your top hat and cleaning your monocle for the start of this Monday morning, you may have noticed something was off with the stock market.

For starters, the economy tanked hard, dropping 1,000 points in seconds after opening.

That's real bad.

You can't really see what happens, but you know it's heroic.

That's State Trooper Eric Devers, who leaps over a guardrail to save a truck driver that had crashed off the highway in Miami County, Ohio. According to the video's description:

An officer with the Ohio State Highway Patrol was honored this week for saving a semi-truck driver's life back in April. Dashcam footage just released shows trooper Eric Devers arrive at the scene of a crash and immediately sprint toward the driver. The trooper found the man still belted into his seat. Shortly after, his eyes rolled back into his head and he stopped breathing, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.

The truck driver apparently had an atrial fibrillation, which is a quivering or irregular heartbeat that caused him to pass out while driving.

And hey! How cool is CPR? You should learn it yourself and become a hero like that guy there.

Certification and education classes are totally available near you.

It only takes a few hours, go ahead and do it.

FOX News reunited the two men during an emotional television segment.

We'll even forgive Devers for saying a pretty worn cliché.

You can pretty much say anything you want while you're saving someone's life.

Wait for it… the singing isn’t the only thing that blows.

Four friends were having the time of their lives on a little road trip singing Player’s “Baby Come Back,” when one of the tires exploded ruining everything.

Fortunately no one was hurt, but they appear to be a bit shaken up by the incident.

And despite the selfie stick disaster causing the camera to spiral out of control, they still managed to get their 15 minutes of fame on YouTube.


“We’re not posting that video,” one of the girls says at the end.

Famous last words.

An idiot spectator thought it would be fun to jump into the 2015 Giro d’Italia bike race on Sunday, and he ended up causing a huge pile-up.

In the clip, the camera shows a man riding from the sidewalk into the street, but then it pans away right as the collision takes place. What we see is the aftermath, which was later confirmed as his fault by riders who were affected by the debacle.

“If I get hold of the d*ckhead that had the brilliant idea of diving into the peloton on a fixed bike with 10km to go, causing us to crash…” tweeted Eugenio Alafaci from Trek Factory Racing.

He also complained about the collision on his Facebook page.

At least one rider quit following the crash, and others suffered minor injuries, according to Nine MSN.

We’ve seen a number of other bizarre crashes over the past few months in European races.

At Belgium’s Tour of Flanders, two competitors were knocked down by support cars, and a spectator appeared to stick his arm out knocking down a racer at the Molecaten Drentse 8 in the Netherlands.
