Welcome to the StoryCorps podcast. In this episode, a story from one of the deadliest airline accidents in US history.

In 1989, United Airline's Flight 232 crashed near Sioux City, Iowa. 111 people lost their lives in the disaster, and of the survivors, only 13 walked away unscathed. Martha Conant was one of them. And here, she tells her daughter-in-law, Brittany Conant, about that day.

"There was a jerk, the airplane really lurched, and the pilot said, 'We've lost an engine. No problem. DC-10th can fly perfectly well on two engines. Sorry for the disturbance. I hope you enjoy the rest of your lunch.' The flight attendants were picking up the dishes and one member of the flight crew came back to look out the window at the wings. But he was calm, he was talking to people. So there was confidence that this was just a hitch, that we were gonna be fine."

"It was 40 minutes from the time that the plane lurched until we, I'm going to say landed rather than crash, coz we were intending to land. And I remember the pilot told us over the P.A. that 'It's gonna be the roughest landing you've ever experienced.' And he yelled, 'Brace, brace, brace.' The next thing was a huge influx of air and debris. My body was being bounced around so much, I was out of control. I lost consciousness and when I came to, I remember saying to myself, 'Oh, I'm still alive.' Then the motion stopped and the plane was still."

Do you think that there is a reason that you survived unharmed?

"Well, I have asked myself that question so many times. When survivors were being fed and cared for, I ended up talking to a young man who was a social worker. And he said, 'God must have had a reason for saving you. You haven't finished your life's work yet.' And I was quite troubled. It felt like I was saddled with a lot of responsibility...to figure out, 'What is this work I'm supposed to be doing?' And then the flipside is God didn't have any more work for all those other people, and I don't believe that. I decided to live with as few regrets as possible. Not leaving home in the morning being upset with someone, not passing up a chance to tell my husband or one of the boys how much I love them. It was hard to do that coz it wasn't the habit. But whenever I thought, 'Oh, this is hard,' then I'd think, 'Well, I might not be coming home tonight. It's not that hard.'"

"That event was like being picked up by the scruff of the neck and shaken and God says, 'This is your only life. Just be grateful that you've got these days and these hours and these wonderful people in your life. Just be, be grateful for that.' And one of the things that has followed me, surrounded me, wrapped me, I think, is that feeling of gratitude."

Martha Conant who survived the crash of United Airlines Flight 232, Martha was interviewed by her daughter-in-law Brittany at a StoryCorps mobile booth in Greeley, Colorado. You can read Martha's story in" listening is an act of love", the new StoryCorp book available now at your local book store, along with the companion CD of 20 stories from all across the country.

Welcome to she Storycorps Podcast, in this episode, a story from one of the deadliest airline accidents in U.S. history. In 1989, United Flight Line Fly 232 crushed near Sioux City, Iowa. 111 people lost their lives in the disaster and of the survivors, only 13 walked away unscathed. Martha Conant was one of them. And here she tells her daughter-in-law, Britney Conant about that day.

There was a jerk that airplane really lurched. And the pilot said “we’ve lost an engine. No problem, DC 10th can fly perfectly well on two engines. Sorry for the disturbance I hope you enjoy the rest of your lunch.” The fly-attendances were picking up the dishes. And one member of the fly crew came back to look out the window at the wings. But he was calm, he was talking to people, so there is a confidence that this was just a hitch that we were gonna be fine.

It was 40 minutes from the time that the plane lurched until we…I’m gonna say landed rather than crushed ‘cause we were intending to land. And I remember the pilot told us of the PA that “It’s gonna be a roughest landing you’ve ever experienced” and he yelled “brace, brace, brace”. The next thing was a huge influx of air and debris. My body was being bounced around so much I was out of the control, I lost consciousness. And when I came to I remember saying to myself: “Oh, I’m still alive!” Then the motion stopped and the plane was still.

Do you think that there is a reason that you survive unharmed?

Well, I have asked myself that question so many times. When survivors were being fitted and cared for, I ended up talking to a young man, who was a social worker and he said: “God must have had a reason for saving you. You haven’t finished your life’s work.” And I was quite troubled; it felt like I was settled with a lot of responsibilities. I then to figure what is this work I’m supposed to be doing? And then the flipside is God didn’t have anymore work for others of those people. And I don’t believe that.

I decided to live with as few regrets as possible. Not leaving home in the morning, being upset with someone. Not passing off the chance to tell my husband or one of the boys how much I love them. It was hard to do that ‘cause it wasn’t the habit. But whenever I thought “Oh, this is hard” then I’d think “Well, I might not be come home tonight.” It’s not that hard.

That event was like being picked up by the scruff of the neck and shaken, God says “This is your only life! This be grateful that you’ve got these days and these hours and these wonderful people in your life. Just be…be grateful for that.” And one of the things that has followed me, surround me, wrapped me, I think is that feeling of gratitude.

Welcome to the StoryCorps podcast. In this episode, a story from one of the deadly airline accidents in US history.

In 1989, United Airlines Flight 232 crashed near Sioux City, Iowa. 111 people lost their lives in the disaster, and of the survivors, only 13 walked away unscathed. Martha Conant was one of them. And here, she tells her daughter-in-law, Brittany Conant, about that day.

"There was a jerk, the airplane really lurched, and the pilot said, 'We've lost an engine. No problem. DC-10s can fly perfectly well on two engines. Sorry for the disturbance. I hope you enjoy the rest of your lunch.' The flight attendants were picking up the dishes and one member of the flight crew came back to look out the window at the wings. But he was calm, he was talking to people. So there was confidence that this was just a hitch, that we were going to be fine."

"It was 40 minutes from the time that the plane lurched until we, I'm going to say landed rather than crashed, coz we were intending to land. And I remember the pilot told us over the P.A. that 'It's going to be the roughest landing you've ever experienced.' And he yelled, 'Brace, brace, brace.' The next thing was a huge influx of air and debris. My body was being bounced around so much, I was out of control. I lost consciousness and when I came to, I remember saying to myself, 'Oh, I'm still alive.' Then the motion stopped and the plane was still."

Do you think that there is a reason that you survived unharmed?

"Well, I have asked myself that question so many times. When survivors were being fed and cared for, I ended up talking to a young man who was a social worker. And he said, 'God must have had a reason for saving you. You haven't finished your life's work yet.' And I was quite troubled. It felt like I was saddled with a lot of responsibility than to figure out, 'What is this work I'm supposed to be doing?' And then the flipside is God didn't have anymore work for all those other people, and I don't believe that. I decided to live with as few regrets as possible. Not leaving home in the morning being upset with someone, not passing up a chance to tell my husband or one of the boys how much I love them. It was hard to do that because it wasn't the habit.

There was a jerk that airplane really lurched. And the pilot said “we’ve lost an engine. No problem, DC 10th can fly perfectly well on two engines.

But he was calm, he was talking to people, so there is a confidence that this was just a hitch that we were gonna be fine.

It was 40 minutes from the time that the plane lurched until we…I’m gonna say landed rather than crushed ‘cause we were intending to land. And I remember the pilot told us of the PA that “It’s gonna be a roughest landing you’ve ever experienced” and he yelled “brace, brace, brace”. The next thing was a huge influx of air and debris. My body was being bounced around so much I was out of the control, I lost consciousness.
