NEWS Grieving Pilot Survives Suicide Try Without a Scratch

Two years after Mark Darling of Eaton, Colo., lost his young adult son in a car accident, the grieving pilot, who’s flown his whole life but hasn’t had a license in years, took his Cessna 172F high-wing airplane for one last ride over Rocky Mountain National Park, reports Global News. He told no one, and as he flew over the town where he’d raised his family, he was so overcome with sadness that he “made a bad decision,” turned his plane east toward the mountains, closed his eyes, and waited for impact, reports CBS Denver.
