Virtika's David Lesh Survives Half Moon Bay Plane Crash

David Lesh, 34, and his friend Kayla were visiting San Francisco from Denver to do an air-to-air photo shoot of Lesh's new Beechcraft Bonanza aircraft he had purchased only a few weeks ago, according to San Francisco's ABC television station, KGO-TV. "We were totally fine", Lesh described to ABC7's Amanda del Castillo.

Lesh and his passenger climbed from the downed plane and grabbed flotation devices and a cell phone as the plane began to sink.

The plane had avoided any serious impact by skipping on the water a few times before settling in to sinking, ABC7 News reports. "Got the door open right away, we piled out".

Leipelt had notified authorities immediately after Lesh's plane hit the water, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. At one point, the friend said he lost sight of Lesh and their other friend in the water. "He turned me around and he guided me right to where he was".

The Coast Guard helicopter had been training nearby and responded quickly to the crash, KNTV reported.

The pilot in the second plane, Owen Leipelt of San Jose, radioed air traffic control, who called the U.S. Coast Guard. In true David Lesh style, he recorded pretty much the entire event on his iPhone, for your viewing pleasure.

Why Is PrepAway Considered to Be the Best Platform for Exam Dumps?
However, it’s not easy to tell which one of those sources offers authentic exam dumps that will help you pass your test. All you need to do is to identify the best site for exam dumps, and you will pass your certification test with flying colors.

Lesh said the ordeal has left him with no reservations about flying in the future.

"I'm on the seat cushion", said Kayla in the video.

An NBC Bay Area reporter tweeted video showing the plane splashing into the water, and another video purported to have been taken by the pilot shows a woman waving at the Coast Guard helicopter while she was in the water after the crash. Lesh managed to record their arrival while bobbing in the water.

The sheriff's department said the two people rescued were taken to a local hospital as a precaution, but had earlier declined medical attention, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. Joshua Murphy, said in a statement.

The pair were rescued without any injuries, although they did suffer jellyfish stings.

"For as awful as it was, as it could've been, it really wasn't bad", PO1 Mikol Sullivan told KGO-TV.
