Residents say pilot's actions spared lives on the ground

Residents in a Palos Hills neighborhood were out Monday looking at scattered pieces of a small plane that crashed hours before, wondering if the last act of a pilot before his death was to find a vacant lot on a street crowded with houses to spare lives. "It looks like he aimed for the one vacant spot," said Barbara Janusz, who lives with her daughter's family in a house in Palos Hills where she said the plane's wings came to rest. "I'm sure he sacrificed his own life for everybody else's, bless his soul."
