Cory Lidle Dead In Plane Crash

A tragedy in New York today, as a small aircraft registered to Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle crashed into a Manhatten high rise.

The story doesn't confirm if it was Lidle himself flying the plane, but I'll update this post as information comes in.

Hat tip to Avi for sending me the story.

First Update: His passport has been found in the street by the accident.

Second Update: ESPN Story. Confirmation of death.

FOX News and Reuters are now reporting Cory Lidle was confirmed to be the pilot.

I sincerely hope that this was a dreadful accident and not some horrific suicide plot.

The CNN story reports that there was a call in reporting that the plane was running low on fuel, so that points it in the direction of being an accident.

Can anyone say Thurmon Munson. Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
