Olympic Snowboarder’s Near-Death Plane Crash Being Investigated by Feds
January 23, 2022
Federal officials are investigating a California plane crash after a number of people expressed doubts about the heroic story told by the pilot, who filmed the incident and posted it on social media. Trevor Jacob, a former team USA Olympic snowboarder, says he was on a mission to spread his friend’s ashes when he took to the skies in his single-engine plane over Los Padres National Forest. Twenty minutes into the flight, Jacob says he started experiencing engine trouble, and went on to jump out with a parachute.
