Plane with 53 dogs on board crashes into usually busy Wisconsin golf course: ‘It could have been bad’ Wed, 16 Nov 2022 18:00:27 +0000

DELAFIELD, Wis. – A plane carrying three people and more than 50 dogs crashed on the course of Western Lakes Golf Club in this town about 30 minutes west of Milwaukee on Tuesday morning.

Lake Country Fire & Rescue responded to the call of a downed plane around 9:04 a.m., according to Deputy Chief Matthew Haerter. The first unit arrived five minutes later to find a twin-engine aircraft at the third hole as heavy snowfall hit the area. The course is at W287 N1963 Oakton Road.

Club general manager Jason Hoelz told the Journal Sentinel that a few staff were doing maintenance on the course a few hundred yards away when they heard and saw the plane descend.

“I was in a building here and didn’t hear anything, but there were a few employees working the course who heard this plane descend and saw it hit the fifth green, crash between two trees, ( cross) a swamp and another 100 feet across the fairway from the second hole and onto the third hole, where he uprooted another tree and came to a stop,” Hoelz said. “Altogether he skidded a few hundred meters.”

The plane’s wings reportedly separated on the fifth hole where it initially hit the ground, causing fuel to spill into the plane on the course and part of a swampy body of water. The aircraft can hold up to 300 gallons of jet fuel. It is not known at this time how many spills or the impact it had on the wetland.

“I’m just happy that we were able to help in any way we could and happy that we were there quickly and were able to provide assistance,” Hoelz said.

The plane reportedly flew from New Orleans to Waukesha to deliver 53 dogs to the Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha. Three adults were also on the plane and were assessed and treated at the scene before being taken to a local trauma center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Immediately after the crash, Hoelz said his staff sprang into action. They removed the three passengers from the plane and also herded the dogs into their crates. Some crates were damaged, but staff were able to round up the dogs and all were brought to the maintenance building until HAWS arrived.

Some of the 53 dogs suffered minor injuries like “bumps and scrapes which will be monitored over the next few days but should be good to go and ready for adoption as scheduled,” according to HAWS Director of Organizational Development Maggie. Tate-Techtmann. .

Because HAWS was preparing to receive the dogs at the Waukesha County airport, they were there quickly to pick them up and care for them on the spot before processing them at HAWS.

Twenty dogs remain at HAWS while the rest have been sent to other shelters as planned.

“All are doing remarkably well,” Tate-Techtmann told the Journal Sentinel. “We are very grateful to the staff at Western Lakes Golf Club who have been wonderful to work with and for the emergency response teams in Waukesha and for our team and how they responded. Everyone pivoted so well. I tell them all the time to be prepared for the unexpected, and the team did an amazing job meeting the needs of these dogs today. Some have already been out having fun in the snow and are on their way to finding their forever home.

The Department of Natural Resources and the Waukesha County Hazmat are on the scene to assess the extent of the fuel spill, as it involves a wetland. No further information was available as of Tuesday morning on the extent of the spill, but there is not believed to be a danger to the community at this time. Hoelz said the DNR is evaluating what reclamation efforts may be needed for the wetland.

Additionally, Haerter praised the efforts of golf club staff who reported the crash and assisted aircraft passengers and first responders upon arrival.

It is not known what caused the plane to crash. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the incident.

The damage is still being assessed by the club. It is believed that damage was caused to the fifth green, second fairway and other parts of the course. However, Hoelz said if the weather turns nice again, the club will likely reopen again this season.

“There were over 200 golfers here last Thursday,” Hoelz said. “A week ago it allegedly crashed into golf holes that people were playing on. It could have been bad.

Additionally, HAWS has started a fundraiser for “at-risk adoptable dogs from southern shelters.” Tate-Techtmann said all funds will go towards treating injuries and caring for the dogs while at the shelter.

“All animals have been triaged at HAWS by staff veterinarians. Some stay at HAWS while others have gone to our partner shelters. All should be up for adoption as scheduled within the next few days,” according to the fundraiser message.

The Phoenix Suns are off to a good start and everyone seems to be doing their part.

Devin Booker scores at will, Chris Paul orchestrates the Phoenix attack, and the rest of the plays fell just as the Suns envisioned.

The Suns are 6-1, their only loss being an overtime loss via classic Dame Time fashion to the Portland Trail Blazers. Phoenix tied the record for the best start in franchise history after defeating the Western Conference’s top projected seeds such as the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks.
