Rep. Lipinski Reacts to Plane Crash near Midway Airport

11/18/2014

Statement from Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3):

“My heart goes out to the loved ones of the pilot that lost his life this morning when a small twin-engine cargo plane crashed shortly after taking off from Midway Airport into a home in the 6500 block of South Knox Avenue in Chicago.  My prayers are also with the couple whose home was damaged and their neighbors.  It is truly a miracle that more people were not injured in this accident.  I would like to thank the first responders and surrounding neighbors for their quick response to a situation made even more difficult by the weather.  Their immediate reaction says a lot about the community we live in. 

“I have been in touch with Chicago and federal aviation officials about the crash and in the coming days I look forward to receiving additional updates about the ongoing investigation into this incident.  It is of the utmost importance that we do all we can to ensure the safety of ‎all those flying into and out of Midway Airport, as well as the safety of those living in the surrounding communities.”
