A New London area man and his 15-year-old son are credited with saving a pilot who crashed his single engine plane in east central Wisconsin. Waupaca County sheriff’s officials say the pilot is still alive thanks to Paul Nichols and his-son, after a new home built plane crashed late Sunday near the runway of a private airport in the town of Mukwa, west of New London. Nichols says his wife heard the plane crash, and he and his son ran toward the aircraft, and the male pilot was still conscious when Nichols grabbed one of his arms and pulled him out. The rescuer also said they barely got the pilot to walk away when an explosion doubled the size of the fire in the airplane. No details on the crash have been given at this time. Officials are still investigating what led to the plane going down.
