On this day 25 years ago, there was an mid-air explosion in the Number 2 engine of United Flight 232, causing loss of hydraulic control.
There was a most unlikely hero aboard this flight, Dennis E Fitch, a senior instructor for the McDonnell Douglas DC-10, the plane he was on.
He realized that the crew in the cockpit were not trained in this situation (which was once believed to be impossible) and offered additional assistance.
Even though there was deaths in the crash, he saved over 60% of everyone on board.
If it wasn't for him, everyone on board could have died.
Should July 19 be made Most Unlikely Heroes Day? I think so.
Also, I think there should be a version of the Mariah Carey song "Hero" depicting the heroic actions of Dennis E Fitch.
