A retired TWA Pilot Captain Russell Hazelton, from Pennsylvania is dead in Piper PA 28 Cherokee single-engine, with wife Suzanne Hazelton,





Russell Hazelton, 78, whose primary home was in Factoryville, Pa. but who had a secondary home in Town & Country, died early Thursday at SSM DePaul Health Center in Bridgeton, Major Bill Carson, deputy chief of the Maryland Heights Police Department, said.

His wife Suzanne Hazelton, 69, is in critical condition, Carson said.


A retired TWA pilot from Pennsylvania is dead and his wife in critical condition after their small plane crashed and flipped over in Creve Coeur Lake the night of Oct. 24.

Russell Hazelton, 78, whose primary home was in Factoryville, Pa. but who had a secondary home in Town & Country, died early Thursday at SSM DePaul Health Center in Bridgeton, Major Bill Carson, deputy chief of the Maryland Heights Police Department, said.

His wife Suzanne Hazelton, 69, is in critical condition, Carson said.

"The two had flown out of Pennsylvania, stopped in Ohio for fuel, and their destination was Creve Coeur Airport near the park," Carson said.

"The FAA is on scene and awaiting arrival of an National Transportation and Safety Board  investigator, and they will conduct a full investigation to determine the cause of the crash," Carson said.

A witness told police she saw the plane  overhead and heard the engine sputtering.

"We don't know if the plane was running out of fuel or having engine problems," Carson said.

"To the witness, it appeared as if the pilot was possibly trying to make an emergency landing on the beach and instead touched down on the water, but flipped over and started sinking."

Police officers were called out at 8:40 p.m. to the north side of the lake, near Sailboat Cove.

Police officers found the Piper PA 28 Cherokee single-engine, four-seater airplane upside down about 40 or 50 feet from shore, with most of the plane underwater, Carson said.

After officers were unable to get the door open, six of them were able to drag the plane closer to shore and lift it to get the cockpit out of the water.

They were aided by firefighters, including those from the Maryland Heights and Pattonville fire protection districts, he said.

"A firefighter used a tool to force the door open to get inside the cockpit, where a man and woman were strapped into their seats," Carson said.

Fire district paramedics began resuscitation, after which the pair was taken by ambulance to DePaul Health Center.

"While it was a valiant  effort by police and firefighters to get the people out, unfortunately, they likely had been underwater for several minutes," Carson said.
