I saw the accident as I was leaving to return home from Echo Lodge. it was very strange to see because the ultra lite was flying seriously low, right above us, right above the trailers in the park and mobile homes, you could tell he was in trouble because the aircraft was tilting to one side. all of a sudden he drifted towards the rear of the park, towards the store and as we drove towards the exit, we saw him go down before our eyes. it was surreal to see something so tragic but everyone in the park who was outside that morning saw what happened and people started running towards the scene and golf carts were racing to get to him. Everyone was trying to help and do what they could do get the aircraft off the victim and help. It was amazing to see what people are willing do to help someone in trouble. People at the river are amazing and when necessary, people all come together to help. All I can say is that our prayers are with the family and how devastated we all were that morning to witness something so tragic. God bless the victim, his family and everyone that came to help.
