    Four die in Iowa plane crash after pilot aparently had heart attack

    In a tragic story, 4 people were killed when the pilot of a small aircraft suffered a heart attack while flying the plane. A student pilot attempted to make an emergency landing but was unsuccessful.


    Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Four people died in a small plane crash in rural Iowa after the pilot apparently had a heart attack and a student pilot was going to attempt an emergency landing, authorities said Saturday.

    Around 5 p.m. Friday, air traffic control in Des Moines requested an emergency landing for a single-engine aircraft at the airport east of Guthrie Center, Guthrie County Sheriff Marty Arganbright said in a release to local media. Traffic control reported that 1979 Piper single-engine plane dropped off radar approximately 4 miles southwest of the airport. Guthrie is 60 miles west of Des Moines.

    The Sheriff's Office launched an extensive search and rescue mission to find the aircraft but was hampered by pitch-black conditions in forested areas.

    Very sad. I wonder if the pilot knew he had a heart condition?
