Hero Teen Saves Helicopter Pilot After The Copter Crashes Onto The Tractor He Was Driving

One Washington teen became a hero this summer. This happened as he saved the life of a pilot who crashed into the tractor he was driving. Logan Schneider was working in his family’s cherry orchard when he spotted a crashing helicopter headed straight toward him. Thankfully, he was able to think quickly, saving his life along with the life of the helicopter pilot.

The teen was hard at work, equipped with noise-canceling headphones when Logan heard what he describes as “two thumps”. At first, he had no idea the tragedy that was about to unfold. However, Logan soon became very aware of the seriousness of the situation.

“I looked up and that’s when I saw it,” Schneider recalls in a discussion with The New York Times.

“As soon as I saw it coming down on me I was like, ‘Oh no, this is definitely gonna hit me,’” the teen recalls.

Schneider also spoke about the incident with Seattle’s KING-TV. In this discussion, Schneider remembers how the helicopter was pinning him against the tractor’s steering wheel. Logan recalls that he was “stuck with the nose of the helicopter sitting right here.”

Thankfully Schneider was thinking fast, freeing himself from the devastating wreckage. He then focused his efforts on helping the helicopter pilot who was still buckled into the machine.

“I heard him screaming,” Schneider recalls of the pilot who was hanging upside down in the wreckage.

“I looked and I saw him … upside down hanging,” the teen recalls. “Fire was everywhere. When I was in the moment I really wasn’t thinking. I was just doing.”

According to reports, the Hiller UH-12E helicopter crashed after it became entangled in power lines. Both the pilot and Schneider were transported to a local hospital. However, the injuries were non-life-threatening.
