Jet Crashes in Chicago Neighborhood, Killing 42 people

CHICAGO – A United Airlines Jet carrying 61 people crashed in a residential district while making it’s decent on Chicago’s Second City Airport Friday afternoon.  42 bodies have been found in the wreckage, while 16 people, including three flight attendants were admitted to Holy Cross Hospital with injuries.

A survivor claimed that this had all happened because the pilot had “too many cocktails.”

“The last words the pilot said to us were, ‘We are at 4000 feet and everything is going well,’ I knew something was wrong a few seconds later because he began to rev the engines,” said Marvin Anderson of Omaha, one of the few survivors.

This crash happened only a month after a train wreck claimed the lives of 45 in Chicago.

Alderman James Stanley of Chicago said that he hoped nothing happens to his great city again if he could help it.


AAU Student Presumed Dead After Rough Day on Water

DAYTON BEACH – Four Armstrong Aeronautical University students went sailing  yesterday, only 3 would return after a capsized boat and alleged shark attack.  Randy Cohen, Christy Wapniarski, Daniel Perrin, and Tammy Ennis were out on their 16 foot catamaran when a leak sprung and sunk the boat.  The students were wearing no life jackets and the current was strong.

They were four miles from shore when they decided to start swimming back.  While on the way back, Wapniarski called for help.  Cohen said that Wapniarski had said she was being attacked by a shark.  When Cohen reached Wapniarski, she found her unconscious and no sign of a shark.  Perrin would put his arms around Wapniarski and swim with the rest of them for shore.  Cohen would check Wapniarski’s pulse and say she was dead.  Perrin would eventually grow tired, and have to leave the body behind.

It would take 6 hours before the group reached shore.  Cohen had been bitten by dozens of Portuguese men – of  – war.  All would be admitted into Halifax Hospital in Daytona Beach.
