Pilot injured in crash released
St. Joseph News-Press
A 76-year-old Doniphan, Kan., man injured in a plane crash on April 9 near Atchison, Kan., has been released from the hospital.
George W. Donaldson had been in stable, then good, condition at Heartland Regional Medical Center since the crash.
A nursing supervisor on Saturday said he’d been transferred to the hospital’s downtown campus. A hospital spokesman could not say Wednesday on which day Mr. Donaldson was released from the downtown campus.
The crash is thought to have happened when Mr. Donaldson took off about 6 p.m. from his private airstrip about 10 miles northwest of Atchison in his two-seat plane. Neighbors said the plane clipped some trees at takeoff, lost power and crashed in a wooded area in the valley below his airstrip.
