According to the Hutchinson News, a Sublette man critically injured in a powered parachute accident Jan. 17 near Sublette has died.

Herman Banman Neufeld, 29, of Sublette, who’d been hospitalized at Via-Christi Hospital-St. Francis in Wichita since the accident, died Sunday afternoon, said Haskell County Sheriff Troy Briggs.

Neufeld was a passenger on a craft piloted by Wilhelm Enns, 24, of Garden City, which collided with another powered parachute operated by John Dyck, 23, Garden City, that Enns was attempting to circle and his plane fell to the ground, officials reported at the time. Enns died at the scene.

Dyck, who also carried a passenger, was able to land safely and was not hurt.

Briggs said his office has completed and closed its investigation, but the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board still had open investigations.
