STURGEON BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - Local 5 has an update on the incredible emergency landing in Door County.
When 81 year old pilot John Collins had a heart attack and lost consciousness, his wife who is not a pilot took the controls.
Local 5 was given cell phone video of Helen landing the plane. You see the plane hit the runway, pop up, then make a landing.
Helen was guided by other pilots on the ground and in the air.
She suffered minor injuries and is still in the hospital.
John did not make it, but his memory will live on because of the countless lives he touched in Door County.
Local 5 first introduced you to John Collins in 2011.
He quietly volunteered to fly a local family to Denver for free to get the best medical treatment for their two sons.
Collins told us last fall "I just know people would help me if I needed it, I'm just fortunate that I can afford so I'm very happy to be able to help them".
The simple words sum up how Collins lived his life.
"I wouldn't want to think of what my recovery would be like without him" says Brian Murrock.
Brian was the recipient of an Angel Flight, with Collins as pilot. It is free transportation for people with medical needs.
"John does it in a way that doesn't say this is what I've done he does what he does because he was a giving person" says Sharon Murrock.
The Murrock family was touched by his generosity twice.
Their older son Eric is a person with quadriplegia after a diving injury.
Then, 14 months later the unthinkable.
Younger son Brian, suffered a spinal cord injury on his dirt bike.
According to Sharron Murrock " It is truly life altering for our children to know that he did that for both of them because there would not have been coverage for them to go out to Denver".
Now it is time to live like John.
The Murrocks do not have a plane, but they do have tools as owners of a landscaping company.
"I sent my crews to John and Helen's house to give it a spring clean up" says Bill Murrock. "I'm sure there will be a lot of visitors coming and going and I want their place to look good".
A man friends call an angel on earth, who died doing what he loved.
"John was probably just closer to heaven when he went" says Brian Murrock.
The Collins family is waiting until after Easter to hold a funeral for John.
