Larry Hicks to be shown on A&E

first_img Wasserman and a television crew were in Troy this week to film a segment of “Urban Legends” that will feature the Roush rescue with the story as told by Hicks.“We will recreate what happened that day and the interview with Larry Hicks will be a part of the narration,” Wasserman said. “It’s a real story of faith.”Wasserman’s interview with Hicks took him back, not just to the plane crash and rescue but also to his years with the U.S. Marines.“How was it that you had the training and know-how to rescue a pilot from a plane submerged in eight feet of water?” she asked. Print Article Skip Hicks explained that, as a Marine, he was in full time telecommunications, but he also took advantage of an opportunity for Corps search and rescue training.“Although I never had to use that training in the military, it prepared me for what happened 18 years later,” Hicks said.“I had been trained to search for a pilot whose plane had gone down in water. Once I located the pilot, I knew where the seatbelt was and how to release it.”Hicks said, when he released the seatbelt, the pilot floated into his arms.“When we got to the surface, the pilot wasn’t breathing. I held on to the wing with one hand and gave him modified CPR with the other hand. On the fifth breath, he started breathing.”Hicks said it was the Marine training that prepared him for the rescue situation.“But I’m no hero,” he said.“So many things just fell into place. God had His hand in it all. God saved Jack. I was just God’s instrument.”Following the rescue, Hicks and Roush have become more than friends. They are family.“My concern right now is for Jack,” Hicks said.“The plane he was flying just snapped in two during the landing. But he walked out of the plane. You know, it’s strange but this crash was at 6:15 p.m. – and that’s the same time he went into the lake behind my house. I know because I was watching the news when I saw the plane hit the steel cable and go in the water. I pray that Jack comes back from this crash just as he did before. He’s a good friend and a great guy.”The Roush/Hicks story will air on A&E in 2011 and will possibly also be shown on the History Channel and the Discovery Channel. For Larry Hicks, it’s hard to believe that there are others who still remember.But, the recent recognition has a bitter sweetness to it.As Hicks remembered Thursday under the bright lights of a television camera, the man that he rescued from a plane crash in a Troy lake in 2002 was listed in serious condition in a Wisconsin hospital, the victim of yet another plane crash.

But a researcher and interviewer with Cineflix in Toronto just happened to read the story of the Roush rescue in a faith magazine. The story captured Amelia Wasserman’s interest and she recognized it as a potential story for A&E’s “Urban Legends.”“When I was contacted about doing a television interview and they said it was for ‘Urban Legends,’ I said, ‘You’ve got to be kidding,’” Hicks said, laughing. “Legend?

Sponsored Content “She was the youth director at First Missionary Baptist Church in Troy for 35 years and was the leader of the Crusaders until well into her seventies,” Watts said. “Those young men loved and respected her. When Mother died in 2012, they came from all over the country to attend her funeral and several of them asked to be on the program.”Watts said her mom did anything she could to help young people. She would go out of her way to help anyone.“She encouraged and supported those she cared about, even if it meant giving in,” Watts said. “Mother was a die-hard Alabama fan but when one of the Crusaders was on the team at Auburn, she turned. She said she was going watch Auburn play and she was going to root for Auburn to win and she did.”WSFA personality Tonya Terry is Watts’ niece and she had a strong affection for McNabb. By The Penny Hoarder Annie Lois McNabb was the mother of 10 children. She experienced the greatest sadness a mother can know in the loss of a child several times over, including the tragic loss of a daughter in a plane crash.McNabb knew great sadness and she also knew great joy. That’s the way McNabb lived her life, overcoming sadness and finding joy in all things, even the little things, especially little children.And, was her love of children that inspired her own children to organize the Annie Lois McNabb Back to School Event in 2013. On Saturday, the McNabb family will once again host the back to school event for school age children 12 years and under. The event will be from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at Murphree Park in Troy. Parents are asked to attend with their children. McNabb legacy continues through giving Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “Tonya spoke only two lines in a play that my mother directed but she said she would have walked 500 miles just to say those two line for my mother,” Watts said.Annie Lois McNabb’s legacy will live on through her children and grandchildren and also through all of those who knew her and those who know about her through the annual Back to School Event.“This is something our family wants to do to give back to the community and it’s also a way to remember and honor our mother,” Watts said. “She wanted all children to be successful in life and getting a good education is so important to success in whatever you choose to do.”Watts said, hopefully, the Annie Lois McNabb Back to School event will help encourage and motivate the children to have a successful 2017-2018 school year.last_img read more
