SANS - Survey on application security programs

A helicopter crash off the Dorset coast on Easter Monday nearly cost millionaire Phil Burgess his and his family's life. Burgess, financial director at Uxbridge, Middlesex reseller Pandi Data Services, was rescued from helicopter wreckage with his pregnant wife on Monday. The couple spent an hour in freezing sea water after their Bell Jet Ranger got caught in thick fog off the Dorset coast and plunged into the sea. Burgess, his wife Lisa and the baby are all in good shape. The Burgess' were making a routine flight from his parents in Devon to their own home in Buckinghamshire, when they got lost and plunged into the sea. With her husband's help, Lisa clambered on top of the now-floating helicopter. But gallant Burgess feared his 15 stone weight might sink the machine, so stayed in the water, inadvertently playing out the scene from a recent movie. "We couldn't help but think of the end of the film Titanic, where Leonardo DiCaprio is in the sea and Kate Winslet floats on the raft," Burgess told the Daily Mail. Eventually they were spotted by a fishing boat and hauled to safety. A representative at Pandi told The Register that Burgess would return to work next week. "He's a bit shocked, but other than that he's OK," she said. ®
