Long Description:
Jerry Schemmel preserves his memories of that disastrous airplane crash in his book “Chosen to Live.” That fateful day when United Airlines Flight 232 made a crash landing at the Sioux Gateway Airport, he managed to escape the wreckage with 183 other survivors, but returned to the plane to rescue 11 month old infant.

“…I turned to see a shaft of light—sunlight—pouring into the cabin. That was our exit. There was a way to get out. I knew at that moment I was not going to die. I knew then I would be a survivor of Flight 232…Flight 232 allowed me to find life’s real meaning, and it’s really very simple.”
