Cirrus Chute Deployment Results In Indiana Water Landing

ANN REALTIME Update, 1640 EST, 082806: ANN has learned of the identities of those involved in today's SR22-GTS parachute deployment into an Indiana pond off the end of Eagle Creek Airport... but we have also learned that the pilot, Pilot Robert Edesess, an Indianapolis oral surgeon, passed away a short while ago at the Methodist Hospital. Edesess was the person who was reported to have required CPR after having been extricated from the aircraft in respiratory distress. The other three occupants, who have survived the accident, include the Doctor's wife, Pouliri Edesess, who is listed in fair condition. Jeremy Edesess, the pilot's son is listed in serious but stable condition, while family friend Janet Adams, is reported to also be in serious but stable condition.

Original Report: In an incident that occured shortly after 1040 local time, today (Monday), a four seat Cirrus (like that shown below) used its BRS system to save the four persons onboard after an inflight emergency occurred just after departure from Eagle Creek Airport (KEYE) in Indiana.

The aircraft came down in a small retention pond, not far from shore, and is about halfway submerged in video presented from the scene. Media reports claim that there are four persons on board the aircraft, that each has been brought to shore and that all occupants are now safe.

The aircraft, N91MB, a Cirrus SR22-GTS (file photo, below) departed Eagle Creek Airport, near Indianapolis, enroute to Hilton Head, SC, and developed an undefined emergency that resulted in the successful chute deployment. This is a relatively new aircraft, having been placed on the civil registry on June 7th, 2006, with SN #1973.

One POB reportedly required aid after experiencing water ingestion but was also reported to be breathing on their own prior to transport to an area hospital. The Chief of the Wayne Township Fire Department, Gene Konzen, reported that one injured passenger had to be revived when brought to shore. "They did get him back breathing, but they had to do some work to get him breathing on his own. He must have been under a little bit too long." One bystander apparently swam to the aid of the stricken aircraft and helped extricate the occupants.

ANN is monitoring the situation and will update the story as details emerge.
