Siouxland News has confirmed the death of 87 year old Captain Al Haynes, one week away from his 88th birthday.
Haynes died in a Seattle hospital after suffering a brief illness.

Woodbury County Emergency Manager Gary Brown tells us Haynes was a "humble, lovable individual who always gave credit to the crew of Flight 232 for saving as many lives as they did."

Brown adds that Haynes considered Sioux City his second home and gave thousands of speeches and seminars about his experience in July of 1989.

Funeral services for Captain Haynes are pending.

Boy, do I remember that passenger jet crash -broad daylight cart-wheel crash at Sioux city Airport. Of the 296 people on board, only 111 died, including 11 kids -many traveling alone on United's "Children's Day" promotion. Majority of survivors were from front (pilot Haynes & crew)), a dozen w/NO injuries, many even walking out of crash! Weird. ...VIDEOMonday, August 26, 12:41:02pm
