The lone survivor of the Kentucky plane crash that killed 49 people, said that he thinks about the victims daily and expresses his sympathy to their loved ones.
Co-pilot James Polehinke was released from a Lexington Rehabilitation Hospital last week and has returned to Florida.
Polehinke had his leg amputated and suffered brain damage after Comair Flight 5191 crashed shortly after takeoff, on Aug. 27, from Bluegrass Airport, in Lexington.
His attorney released a statement yesterday, Thurs., Dec. 21, in which Polehinke thanked his rescuers and medical team.
Polehinke also thanked people who sent him letters and prayed for him, which he said helped see him “through the most difficult times.”
