    F-18 Crash

    There has been an F-18 crash in a neighborhood southeast of us.
    Pilot is OK but two homes are gone.

    Don't know if there was anyone in the homes yet.

    This story just gets sadder and sadder. This poor man lost his whole family. His wife, MIL and 2 baby daughters.

    one was just born in October. They found her today using cadaver dogs. The MIL had just come to stay to help her care for her new baby.

    Oh, what a sad, sad tragic story. Absolutely devastating.

    And what a wonderful man Mr. Yoon is to ask the public to pray for the pilot.

    Here he is in unbearable grief thinking of the pilot because he knows how horrible the pilot must feel although he did all he could.

    I saw the man that lost his family asking the public to pray for the pilot and saying that the pilot was a treasure. What a heart on this man that he would think of the guilt that the pilot is feeling. I had to watch the clip again when they replayed it.

    This story breaks my heart. This man must have such a strong spirit, such faith, and such true belief that is sustaining him. He is in my prayers.
    God bless him always.

    Such a horrible story. I was afraid when they hadn't located the one year old that the toddler was gone,too. I have a one year old and he doesn't even stay still in his sleep. What a special man to think of the pilot at this horrible time.

    I agree, in Jesus' Name, amen.

    I will most certainly pray for this young man, that God will give him strength and comfort to carry on each day, and I will pray for the pilot as well..


    This post is my opinion only, and is subject to making me look totally confused

    Just a horrible tragedy; that poor man. It looks like he has some family there to support him. I can't imagine such a trauma. I'm glad the fire didn't spread to other houses; I know the pilot feels awful and traumatized as well.

    oh my goodness, how terrible. This is probably one of those "one-in-a-million" things that no one would've ever though would happen.

    Prayers to pilot, the husband and everyone grieving!
