Dec 11, 2005, 5:01 PM EDT

From ESPN:

A small plane piloted by New York Yankees
pitcher Cory Lidle
crashed into a 50-story condominium tower Wednesday on Manhattan’s Upper East
Side, raining flaming debris onto the sidewalks below and rattling New Yorkers’
nerves five years after the Sept. 11 attack.

Lidle died in the crash.

Wow.  I don’t even know what to say.  This is a strange, bizarre, tragic story.
