Dumb Luck of The Day: Man Saved From Ohio Plane Crashed Because he Left to go Buy Hot Pockets

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.

Ferdinand Puentes, along with seven other passengers and the pilot, escaped a crashed Cessna just shortly after it plunged into the ocean. Not long after his escape from the sinking aircraft, Puentes found the opportunity to capture an epic selfie!
