    Thats not the first time JR has been in a serious plane crash. Several years ago he crashed one of his aircraft into a lake, and he was fortunate enough that a retired Marine saw the whole thing, swam out, and pulled JR from the submerged plane.

    Edit: Some more info:

    On April 20, 2002, Roush almost lost his life when his private plane, an Aircam, went down in a lake in Troy, Alabama. Roush was underwater and unconscious, suffering from a head concussion, when Larry Hicks, a retired Marine, rescued Roush, pulled him to safety, and administered CPR. Shortly afterwards, Roush was flown to UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama where he was treated for a head injury, broken ribs, and a shattered left leg. Hicks, himself, was injured as a result of the rescue, suffering cramps in both his arms and first degree chemical burns on his body from the fuel.

    That is one lucky guy to survive yet another crash.

    The articles I've read seem to give two very different reports on Jack's condition. Granted I haven't found a OSH newspaper article or been to the Roush-Fenway Racing or EAA website either.

    It will be interesting to see the NTSB report on this accident. It makes me wonder what landing procedure OSH was under at the time of the accident?
