A 8KCAB Bellanca Decathlon plane that was rented by two men went down in the
Texas City Prairie Preserve, 4702 state Highway 146 N. sending the two men to UTMB Hospital in critical condition by Life Flight..

The men were practicing
stunts right before the crash. Witnesses told police that the red and white striped plane was belly up and low to the ground when its wing clipped the ground and skidded about 250 feet before coming to a rest on a barbed wire fence.

Pilots use the airspace over the prairie preserve and Dollar Bay to practice aerobatics.
