Inside Edition

View Description
After getting engaged, a Chicago couple miraculously survived a helicopter crash. Carli McConaughy and Adam Barnett were on a dream vacation in Hawaii when he asked her to marry him. After she said yes, they celebrated with their first ever helicopter ride. They were flying over the island of Oahu when the pilot lost consciousness. He was slumped over at the controls and the helicopter was nosediving straight into the ocean when McConaughy jumped into action.

I was on my dirtbike and a four wheeler didn’t see me and hit me going like 20mph and he broke my knee, fractured my wrist and I got a concussion. I have never had a broken bone or concussion before although I’m only 13 and I got my cast off last week and I’m struggling to regain mobility

For the next topic, please pick a relevant title for it. And you call this a landing? The helicopter itself would have done better without her help.

These helicopters rides/tours have been having too many accidents lately. I think these companies should be held liable and after 3 problems they should be forced to close down.

You made the right choice asking this lovely lady to marry you, and now you know for sure, she is there to save your life, when death looks you both in the eyes. We'll done on the landing, even if it crashed in shallow water. You should be proud of your wife to be... hold on to this one with 2 arms and never let go.
