A man who lost his wife, two kids, and mother-in-law to Monday’s accident had this to say:
“I believe my wife and two babies and mother-in-law are in heaven with God,” Yoon said at a news conference afterward. “Nobody expected such a horrible thing to happen, especially right here, our house.”
Yoon said he bore no ill will toward the Marine Corps pilot who ejected safely before the jet plunged into the neighborhood two miles west of the runway at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. “I pray for him not to suffer for this action,” Yoon said. “I know he’s one of our treasures for our country.”
The family immigrated from South Korea and had moved into the house just a few weeks ago. Initial investigation points toward engine failure as the cause of the crash.
