One Reno air crash victim was young man with muscular dystrophy

From Fox News:

Another one of the victims of the Reno air show crash was wheelchair bound and had muscular dystrophy.

Despite the disability he had his entire life, Michael Wogan, 22, (pictured) graduated Magna Cum Laude from Arizona State University and the young man from Scottsdale, Arizona had even started his own web company.

"Michael was put on this Earth to do his mission," said Kathy Donaldson, one of Michael’s friends. "And he did his mission, and he did it with a wonderful fighting spirit."

Michael was attending the races with his dad, who lost his right eye and some fingers on his right hand.

The father and son were seated in VIP boxes up front where the wheelchairs are allowed.
