Construction crews in Indiana knocking down homes that were hit by an airplane last week found a surprise.

A cat named Zuul, who had been missing since the crash, jumped out of the wreckage on Saturday, South Bend TV station WSBT reported.

Zuul's owner, Patricia Kobalski, had been searching for the kitty, who got stuck between two walls.

"It jumped out and jumped down the corner and I didn't want the wrecking ball to hit it, so I just stopped immediately to try to get down there and try to get it," construction worker Harvey Jackson told WSBT. "So I got out and gave it to the next-door neighbor."

That neighbor rushed the cat to a veterinarian, who told WSBT that Zuul suffered some lung damage and leg injuries, but is expected to survive.

Kobalski and her 6-year-old son were inside their home March 17 when the jet came crashing through their house.

They were not injured, although former University of Oklahoma quarterback Steve Davis and his friend Wesley Caves were on board the plane and were killed. Two others on board and a person on the ground were injured.
