The pilot of a seaplane that crashed into a river in Sydney and killed an entire family has been described as a devout Christian who prayed before each of his flights.
Mr. Morgan was piloting a seaplane with a British family on board when the aircraft ran into problems and plummeted into the Hawkesbury River, New South Wales. Many witnesses onboard nearby boats tried to dive down to the plane but were hindered by leaking jet fuel, poor visibility and the fact the plane was sinking at a rapid rate, as reported by The Sydney Herald.
Canadian-born Gareth Morgan reportedly "committed every flight to the Lord" and was "a warrior for Christ," according to his 44-year-old flatmate, Luke Thornley.
