Patricia Kobalski’s South Bend, IN home was one of three houses struck by the plane that made national news when it went went down in a residential neighborhood last Sunday, killing former Oklahoma University quarterback Steve Davis and his friend Wesley Caves.  The plane was removed from the scene on Tuesday and demolition on the houses was carried out later.

Patricia and her 6 year old son were at home when the small jet hit, but they were unharmed. Their gray tabby cat Zuul was missing after the crash and was not seen again until today. Patricia visited the house last week looking for her missing cat without any luck.

Construction worker Harvey Jackson was knocking down the wall of Patricia’s house this afternoon when Zuul jumped out. He appeared to have been in between two walls. Harvery Jackson was able to grab the cat to save him from the wrecking ball that was demolishing the house. Zuul was taken to a neighbor’s house and was then rushed to a veterinary clinic. He appeared to be unhurt when he was removed from the house.
