Prayers Needed For Pilot

This morning (while we were out buying our plants) this PLANE landed in the hayfield right next to our house. This is not exactly an everyday happening around here, although things have been quite exciting these past few weeks.

Apparently the gentleman (the pilot and only person in the plane) had some mechanical issues and then engine failure while flying. He reported his trouble to the authorities from the air, and then he made an emergency landing in the hayfield. (this according to the local sherriff who came to the farm afterwards)

Afterwards, he walked to the main road and flagged down a car passing to get help. He apparently suffered quite a lot of stress through the incident which caused a major heart-attack. He was transported to our local hospital where he passed away.

Please pray for his family.
