Gyrocopter crashes at Festus Airport

CRYSTAL CITY, Mo. (AP) - Two men who were riding in a gyrocopter are alive after the copter plunged about 20 feet to the ground south of St. Louis.

 

   The accident happened Sunday afternoon at the Festus Airport in Jefferson County, Mo. Names and conditions of the men have not been released.

 

   Authorities say the gyrocopter crashed in a grassy area near the runway. Emergency workers arrived to find one of the men still in the aircraft. He was taken to a hospital.

 

   The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.

 

   The copter is an experimental aircraft that looks like a small helicopter.

Festus lead cleanup deal in the works

   Festus homeowners are anxious to learn the details of a plan to clean up lead contamination in their yards from a nearby scrap metal recycling center.  But residents learned last night they'll have to wait until a deal is finalized between the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and MW Recycling which operates the Shapiro Brothers scrap yard.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that elevated lead levels were found in 16 yards, with as many as 15 more still to be tested.  Water tests in a nearby creek also showed lead and cadmium contamination.  

   The company will pay for and conduct the remediation operations with DNR oversight.

CRYSTAL CITY, Mo. (AP) - An eastern Missouri sheriff is raising safety concerns about gatherings at an old sand mine now used as a recreation complex.

The 200-acre site near Crystal City once provided sand to a glass factory. It is now known as Crystal City Underground.

The site is also rented out to parties. A gathering on April 6 drew hundreds of people. Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that deputies issued eight summonses, including three for underage drinking and two for drugs.

Boyer is concerned about whether emergency vehicles could get to the site, and if a bridge meets safety standards.

Owner Tom Kerr says an emergency plan is in place and plans are in the works for a new road and bridge to the site.
