Pilot Dumped Fuel Before Crashing in Taylorville


Eyewitnesses say the pilot who died in the crash of a small plane in Taylorville over the weekend took heroic action to ensure that no one was hurt on the ground.

 

30-year-old Brandon Sparrow dumped fuel from the plane and appeared to steer it away from buildings on the ground as it crashed into the backyard of a home in a residential area.

 

A group of skydivers had just jumped from the plane before it crashed, they all got out safely, and no one else was injured.
