We were called
because a woman had witnessed her
husband's plane crash into the side of a
hill while she and her daughter were
watching. This was one of the pilot's
first flights since obtaining his license
and his best friend had come along for
the ride. Both were fatally injured. The
plane had to be cut open before we could
remove the bodies.
The NTSB report (LAX94FA138) indicated
that the pilot lost control at low
altitude because he was under the
influence of marijuana and alcohol.
