Pilot who survived plane wreck is out of the hospital

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Officials at Georgia Regents Medical Center tell FOX54 one of the two surviving pilots is no longer at the hospital. Health officials say one of the pilots is in fair condition.

The area where the plane crashed is slowly returning to normal. For the first time in nearly a week police aren't blocking the road to the crash site and NTSB officials tell us they are no longer working through the wreckage. There is still no word on when they will move what's left of the plane.

The five people who were killed in the crash are now being laid to rest.

A memorial service for Lisa Volpitto, 40, was Tuesday afternoon. She leaves behind her husband David and her 14-year-old daughter Tessa.

Chief physician Steven Roth was also killed in the wreck; he leaves behind a wife and two children. There was a vigil and a visitation in his memory Tuesday evening.

Roth's funeral will be Wednesday at 11 a.m. at Saint Teresa's Catholic Church in Grovetown.

The next visitation for a plane crash victim will be for Heidi McCorkle, a single mother with two young sons. Her visitation will be Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Poteet and Sons. Her funeral will be at 2 p.m. Thursday.

All the employees who were killed worked for the Vein Guys and the company spokeswoman tells FOX54 they went back to work this week, but they aren't taking any patients yet. She says they may possibly open to the public again next week.
