Tragic story: Man loses family when jet hit house

In truly a heart-wrenching story, a man who lost his entire family when a Marine Corps jet slammed into the family's house did not blame the pilot who ejected and survived.

"Please pray for him not to suffer from this accident," a distraught Dong Yun Yoon told reporters gathered near the site of Monday's crash of an F/A-18D jet in San Diego's University City community. "He is one of our treasures for the country," Yoon said in accented English punctuated by long pauses while he tried to maintain his composure.

Many question God when tragedy occurs, but this man's trust in God is truly an inspiration. May God grant him strength and our prayers for his entire family.
