Gives First Aid To Auto Accident Victim
FAA inspector Thomas Kozura thought Tuesday would be just
another routine day, but he was quickly proven wrong.
First on Kozura's agenda was investigating an incident involving
a twin-engine Beechcraft that clipped a 46,000-volt powerline 44
feet off Wilson Lake that knocked out power to approximately 1,000
residents of Antrim County, MI.
The pilot, Kevin Johnston managed to land his aircraft at East
Jordan City Airport, according to the Traverse City
Kozura interviewed the pilot and inspected the plane. Later that
afternoon, he left the airport and headed east on M-32 when he
happened upon an accident scene involving a pickup truck and two
bicyclists, said Antrim County Undersheriff Dan Bean.
Paramedics had not yet arrived, so Kozura grabbed a first aid
kit he had in his vehicle. He cleared the airway of Brandon Wade
Inglehart of Petoskey who was unconscious and applied first aid to
William James Aten of Boyne Falls.
"He really did some work on (Inglehart) to save his life," Bean
said. "What a coincidence that this guy happened to be on that
Inglehart was listed in critical condition after being airlifted
to Munson Medical Center. Aten was in stable condition at Northern
Michigan Hospital in Petoskey Wednesday, sheriff's officials
Kozura works out of the FAA's Flight Standards District Office
in Grand Rapids.
