A man who lost his wife, two daughters and mother-in-law in Monday's crash of a Marine fighter jet into his San Diego home says he has no hard feelings toward the pilot.

Dong Yun Yoon told reporters that he knows the pilot did everything he could.

The Korean immigrant and naturalized American says he can't believe his family is gone but knows they are at peace.

The pilot ejected safely and was taken to a naval hospital in stable condition. He was discovered hanging by his parachute from a tree in a canyon beneath the neighborhood.

Meanwhile, California Congressman Duncan Hunter is calling on the Marine Corps to release the maintenance records of all fighter jets like the Hornet that crashed.
