Not All News Is Bad
There are times when I think to myself, is all news in the media and internet bad? It sure seems that way. Thankfully, it's not. Here's a scary story that could have easily become a sad tragedy. Luckily, it ended up with a happy ending.
The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department said a twin-engine airplane crash-landed at Western Lakes Golf Club in Pewaukee on Tuesday morning, Nov. 15.
"I mean disbelief to start with, but obviously the first question is, is everybody okay? And thankfully the answer is yes," said Jason Heltz, Western Lakes Golf Club general manager.
Details About Wisconsin Plane Crash
The plane crashed on the Western Lakes Golf Club in Pewaukee. Onboard were three people including the pilot, co-pilot, and one passenger. Plus, fifty-three dogs. They were being transported from a couple of southern states to some shelters in Wisconsin to be adopted by new families.
The aircraft crashed on the course with debris spread over two holes. Several gallons of fuel were also dumped out in the area. Maintenance workers heard the loud noise from the accident and immediately jumped into action. Their quick reaction was a big reason why there weren't any casualties. Also, helping with the rescue were local first responders, Wisconsin DNR staff, and humane society workers.
The people and dogs were checked for injuries and all are okay. Officials are investigating the incident. It was a miracle.
