Fmr. Penn Stater Survives Crash that Kills Sen. Ted Stevens
At around 8PM Alaska Daylight Time last night, a small plane crashed near Bristol Bay in Alaska. Of the nine passengers on board the plane, five were killed, including former long-time Alaska Senator Ted Stevens. One of the four survivors, however, was a former Penn Stater. Reuters is reporting that Sean O’Keefe and his son are among the survivors and have been airlifted to a hospital in Anchorage, about 350 miles away, for treatment.
O’Keefe served as Associate Professor of Business and as the Dean of the Graduate School at Penn State from 1993-1996, and is currently the CEO of The European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS) North America. O’Keefe is one of the most well known former Penn Staters, having served as the Secretary of the Navy, NASA administrator, and Chancellor of Louisiana State University.
