JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A prominent Mississippi attorney is recovering from injuries he received in a plane crash that occurred just after picking up the single-engine aircraft after having a parachute installed.
Relatives say John Booth Farese was injured when his Cessna 182 crashed Monday just after taking off from the Holly Springs airport, where the parachute had been installed. Farese is a member of a well-known family of attorneys from Ashland.
Steve Farese Sr. says the parachute saved his brother's life. He described his brother's condition as "all banged up" with a back injury. John Farese was recovering Tuesday at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis, Tenn.
Steve Farese said the plane's engine quit about 300-400 feet above the ground and the parachute deployed about 80 percent before impact.
