Farmingdale, N.Y. – Three days after a plane crash claimed the lives of two Farmingdale Stateaviation students, the wreck’s lone survivor joined his classmates Saturday at the school’s 93rd commencement ceremony.
Evan Kisseloff, 21, of Oceanside, N.Y. survived a Wednesday night crash in Sterling, Pa. The plane reportedly stalled on takeoff from Spring Hill Airport – bound for Republic Airport – and crashed.
Amazingly Kisseloff, who was largely unharmed from the crash, marched with an estimated 600 fellow Farmingdale State students Saturday at Nold Hall. Kisseloff received a Bachelor of Science with honors in Aviation Administration http://patch.com/A-tmN8
