Unconscious Florida Pilot Saved By Unlikely Passenger Says 'God Was With Them'

Unconscious Florida Pilot Saved By Unlikely Passenger Says 'God Was With Them'

From thousands of feet in the sky to landing safely on the ground, it’s a miracle story of epic proportions. An unconscious Florida pilot was saved by an unlikely passenger who says, ‘God was with them.’ 

Kenneth Allen was flying two passengers back from the Bahamas when he knew something was off. He began to feel ill, his head was pounding and he began to get light headed. Kenneth tried to shake it off and focus on getting Russ Franck and Darren Harrison back to Florida in his Cessna 208 plane safely to the ground when he fell unresponsive behind the plane's controls.

Now if you haven’t had the opportunity to fly a small airplane, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Flying takes years of training and education. Even then, it takes experience too. When Kenneth passed out, neither Russ nor Darren had any experience. 

But Darren remained calm and contacted air traffic control about the stunning emergency situation. Thankfully not only was Darren able to “fly” the plane safely to the ground, he was able to get Kenneth the help he needed. 

As things seemingly took a turn for the worse, the medical team didn’t think Kenneth was going to make it because he was suffering from an acute aortic dissection. They gave Kenneth a chance to FaceTime his wife to say goodbye but that wasn’t the end of this story. 

Kenneth made it through surgery to repair his heart and less than a month later, he was able to thank Darren and Russ for getting the plane on the ground. He commented, “No doubt God was with them, guiding them every step of the way.” 

God’s presence and guiding hands definitely kept this plane in the air and got them to the ground. It was a miracle story made of miracle moments. 

Psalm 121: “The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life;the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
