Aquí tenemos el testimonio de un ciudadano Guarda Costas que no estaba de servicio y que ayudó a rescatar al piloto:
Bystanders describe rescuing crashed Navy pilot | HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com
Ted Laffkas walked out of his townhouse in the 900 block of 24th St. and heard an explosion. He looked up and saw two guys, "flying in the air."
"They were going way too fast," he said.
Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Nick Beane was meeting friends for lunch in Virginia Beach when he heard a series of loud pops and then the large boom. Across the street, he saw the fire from a crashed jet.
The Coast Guard K-9 handler ran across the street to try to help clear people in the apartment complex from the fire. Laffkas jumped over a 9-foot fence between the apartment buildings to search for the pilots.
Beane banged on doors with another by-stander and found people at home. Many ran out to shoot pictures or video, Beane said he was worried about another explosion if the jet fuel hadn't been cleared.
Then there was another large explosion.
Beane and the other man continued running closer to the fire to alert people inside the apartment complex. When they came around back, Beane spotted a parachute attached to an apartment building that was on fire. There, about 30 feet from the flames, the pilot was flat on his back in his seat, Beane said.
He was barely conscious. Laffkas also spotted him.
"His chute was still on top of the building and it was still attached to him," Laffkas said.
"He wasn't coherent, he had blood on his face."
Beane pulled his knife out to start cutting the cords from the parachute and the pilot regained consciousness.
"He said, 'Thank you,'" Beane said.
Then the pilot got quiet. He was looking around, dazed.
"He kept repeatedly saying, 'Is everybody OK?'" Beane said.
The pilot wanted to know if everyone in the apartment complex was safe and where his co-pilot was located.
Laffkas said he asked the pilot what had happened and the pilot said the plane was losing power and that he pulled the escape hatch.
Freed from the parachute, Beane said he checked for any breaks in his legs, back and neck. Aside from a large bump on his head and a cut in his lip, it seemed safe to move him out of harm's way.
The pilot was carried out of the area and Beane said he checked him again.
"I did what first aid I could do," Beane said.
There was another series of explosions and the pilot told them he wanted to stand up. A third man joined them. They got the pilot out of his seat and search-and-rescue vest, then helped move him to behind a waste bin.
Laffkas left them to search for the second pilot, but couldn't find him. Instead he helped an older woman move away from the burning building.
"It makes me feel very grateful to the military," Laffkas said. "Thank God he was alive."
When emergency crews arrived, Beane was checked out for smoke inhalation, but was cleared by crews when he promised to get to the hospital on his own if he felt sick.
He said he lost track of everyone who helped rescue the pilot and wished he gotten the name of the man who ran around and initially helped to rescue the pilot.
"I said I really appreciated his help," Beane said. "I'm trained ... he's a real hero."
Beane found that man later. It was Laffkas.

Dice una señora que al ir a preguntarle al piloto como estaba lo primero que le dijo fue:
''Im sorry, I destroyed your house''

Dios.... mis ojos.
Cuando encuentren los restos del bollo que se estaba tomando el piloto mandarme un wasap, que ardo en deseos de saber si era relleno de crema o cacao.

Me alegro de que no halla victimas, impresionante las fotos.Distinguir a un aerotrastornado es fácil, en medio de una multitud cuando oiga el sonido de un avión surcando los cielos. Levantara la mirada hasta establecer contacto visual con el avión, da igual el numero de veces que lo haya visto.
