“I talked to [Gifford] last night,” Yurik said. “He’s very kind. He was very apologetic. He explained to me what happened, and I just can’t believe we’re all OK. I think he was feeling the same thing.”
The accident is currently under investigation by the National Transportation and Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration. Watch the following video…
