I'm not sure whether you've all heard the news there, but a gentlemen and hero, Robert Cook, gave his life last Saturday for someone who he had barely known for more than a couple of hours.
Such a selfless act could never go unrecognised - he gave his life in an aircraft accident to save a lady whom he was just about to skydive with. An Australian lady by the name of Kimberly Dear. It's big news here and I'm sure that it will never be forgotten.
Our heartfelt condolences go to his family, who have tragically lost a young son, and brother. He was only 22. It could be said that they gave the Dear family another chance, another chance at a normal and happy life...

In reply to:
but did the accident happen near Sullivan, Missouri
Yes, that is the one...
I've never met either of the two people, but it's just such a sad story, or a bittersweet story I should say. Robert Cook is a hero, and I'm sure he'll never be forgotten. Interviews with the family of Ms Dean have been very emotional, they'll forever be grateful for what he's done.
