  • Gyro down in Sebring, FL 2 fatal

    So sorry to report that a gyro crashed into the trailer park on RT 98 just west of Lake Jackson killing the two occupants and injuring one.

    Very sorry to report that Chris Lord was one of the two victims. My friend in Indiana saw the story about crash on the news. I called my friend near Sebring who checked around and verified that it was Chris. My friend is devastated as he worked for Chris. Such a loss for the community. I was told the identity of the second victim, but I did not write it down.
    I was told Chris left behind a wife and three children. My condolences to those that knew and loved him.

    The passenger was Christopher Brugger 52yrs.
    I am not completely sure, but I am lead to believe he was the aircraft owner and taking delivery from Chris and basically getting checked out in his Calidus.
