Man Dies After Falling From Plane At Air Show

KHQ.COM - A man has died after falling from a stunt plane Sunday at the Selfridge Air Show in Harrison Township, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Todd Green fell 200 feet to the ground when he tried to switch from his airplane to a helicopter at approximately 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the show at Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Harrison Township, according to a press release from the 127th Wing Public Affairs.

Green, who was a wing walker, was flying on John Mohr's Stearman aircraft.

Green was taken to Mount Clemens Regional Medical Center. Hospital spokeswoman Diane Kish said he has died.

Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel and Sheriff Anthony Wickersham attended the event at the time of the accident but did not witness Green falling.

"You can tell just by the reaction of the crowd something happened," Hackel, a former sheriff, said Sunday. "We immediately realized that Selfridge people were very prepared to respond."

After the incident, runways were shut down and all flights stopped. Some attendees left, others gathered in prayer and many stayed to see the show continue about an hour later.

"I think it gave some level of comfort for people hoping he was going to make it," he said of the flights that took place afterward. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
