Amazing American – Plane Crash Shaped Host’s Passion For Life, Broadcast CareerJosh Leng
Amazing Americans host Jerry Schemmel nearly lost his life in a horrific airplane crash in July 1989. It was a profoundly impactful event in his life, and career, as The Topeka Capital-Journal reflects with Jerry, 30 years after United Airlines Flight 232 crashed in Sioux City, Iowa. The DC-10 carrying Schemmel and 295 others “lost hydraulic power and a rear engine exploded. It crashed in cartwheels through a cornfield.” 112 people died in the accident. It would have been 113, if not for the brave action Jerry took that today.
