U.S. Marine dies after rescuing ORU trustee’s daughter from deadly air crash
posted by Rob Kerby, Senior Editor



The daughter of an Oral Roberts University trustee was pulled from the wreckage of a crashed small aircraft by a former U.S. Marine sergeant severely injured in the crash, who then helped her wave down help along a highway.

Three were killed in the crash, and former U.S. Marines Sgt. Austin Anderson, recently returned from two tours in Iraq, died after being airlifted to a Wichita, Kansas, hospital.

The five had been on their way to an Iowa youth crusade.

Hannah Luce, 22, was critically injured and admitted to the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas. She is the daughter of ORU trustee Ron Luce, the founder of Teen Mania Ministries, which was conducting this weekend’s “Acquire the Fire” rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

I'm amazed that someone with burns of that magnitude would even be capable of pulling her from the plane. Calling him a hero is an understatment.
