Another article about Monday’s plane crash comes from the Antigo Daily out of Wisconsin. Antigo is near Mattoon, home to flight medic Maynard Blodgett who survived the crash.

A Mattoon man is recovering in a Chicago-area hospital today after his medical transport airplane crashed Monday evening,

Maynard Blodgett, an emergency medical technician with the Birnamwood fire department, was working as a medic on the Eagle River-based Trans North Aviation flight when it crashed in suburban Chicago, killing three of the five people on board.

According to WSAW-TV, Blodgett contacted Birnamwood Fire Chief Randy Berger on Tuesday to let the department know he was involved in the crash and recovering at a hospital.

The plane was carrying patient John Bialek, 80, of Streamwood, Ill. and his 75-year-old wife, Ilomae Bialek, as well as Blodgett and two pilots, according to Ron Schaberg, the aviation company’s president. The Bialeks were both killed in the crash.

The pilot had filed an instrument flight plan, meaning the plane was being tracked on radar and the pilot was in constant contact with controllers as it flew toward Chicago, Cory said.

The Bialeks were flying back to Chicago from their home in West Palm Beach, Fla. to be closer to relatives as he was being treated for a blood infection.
