O'ahu native survives deadly Las Vegas plane crash
New details on the deadly plane crash in Las Vegas over the weekend shows one of the survivors was born and raised on O'ahu.
Two people were killed when it burst into flames. Three others were taken to the hospital in serious condition.
One of those survivors was pilot Thomas Craig VIII -- born and raised in Mililani.
He was on board a small prop plane making it's way to San Diego when it was forced to turn around, before crashing at Henderson Executive Airport -- about 20 miles from Las Vegas. The plane was in the air for only about 45 minutes before it crash.
Craig's family set up a GoFundMe page Monday saying he suffered third degree burns on 75 percent of his body. His family says it could take months for him to recover in Las Vegas.
The three that were pulled from the burning aircraft were saved thanks to the help of a Good Samaritan.
"Something in me said this plane is going to blow up again. I just sensed it. I had no idea why. I got there first and all I could see was this guy running toward me, moving slowly. He was on fire. My older son saw him too. I kept telling him, drop, drop and roll," said Sevag Sagherian.
The first person he saved was Craig, helping him put out the flames before going back to save a second person.
Officials say the plane had mechanical issues shortly after take off, but the exact cause is still under investigation.
