Chen Yi-li (陳怡利), the chief prosecutor at the Pingtung District Prosecutors Office, said a forensic examination showed that the woman sustained a head injury, leading to the possibility that the American pilot may be liable for negligent homicide.
The pilot, identified as David Cortina, was prohibited by the court from leaving Taiwan, and he was ordered by prosecutors to turn over his passport and travel documents to prevent him from fleeing or hiding.
The accident occurred at 4:50 p.m. Saturday during the F3F Radio Control Soaring (Slope) World Cup at Lungpan Park on the eastern coast of the Hengchun Peninsula. [FULL STORY]
