Today is the 15th anniversary of the crash of Flight 2-32 in Sioux City, and the pilot of the plane, Al Haynes, was in Sioux City to conduct a special seminar about being prepared for disasters. Haynes says like many who’ve survived such a perilous situation, he suffered extreme guilt. Haynes says the guilt of survival can lead to suicide. Haynes says many of those who lived to talk about the crash talk about the survivors. He prefers to focus on those who died on July 19, 1989. Haynes says while most everybody else talks about the survivors, he feels it’s important to talk about the 112 who perished in the crash, 184 survived. A number of events are being held in Sioux City today to mark the anniversary of the D.C.-10 crash 15 years ago.
