Two men dead after airborne Porsche crashes into home's second floor

Two men have died after the Porsche they were driving crashed and flew into the second storey of a building in New Jersey.

In the early hours of Sunday morning (local time) Braden DeMartin, 22, and Daniel Foley, 23, were travelling in the red sports car when the car hit a median strip.

Mr DeMartin was driving the car when it struck an embankment and hurled five metres into the air and launched into a building.
