Freeskier is reporting that Virtika founder David Lesh survived a plane crash into Half Moon Bay off the coast of California. It is being reported that his plane crashed after the engine failed yesterday, August 20, 2019.
Lesh has recently purchased a new Beechcraft Bonanza aircraft when it lost power as he and another passenger were flying towards the Golden Gate Bridge.
“It skipped along the water a few times. There was like no impact. We were totally fine,” Lesh described to ABC7’s Amanda del Castillo. “Got the door open right away, we piled out. I grabbed my phone, grabbed some stuff to float with and we stood on the wing as long as the plane was floating which was probably 30 seconds or 40 seconds.”
