WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Today marks 58 years since a Wichita plane crash that claimed dozens of lives. A military tanker went down near 20th and Piatt after taking off from McConnell Air Force Base.

It killed seven on the plane, and 23 others on the ground. As people remember this tragic day and the loved ones lost, there is emotional trauma many have not dealt with. And that is why this one Social Sciences Professor at WSU is hoping to bring this documentary to life.

“Heard the plane crashed that morning. Got up, went outside, and looked. Seen the smoke from that location. Got on my bike and road as close as I could get,” said Victor L Daniels, who was 10 when the Piatt plane crashed.

The Piatt plane crash killed Daniels' grandmother, father, and two cousins. His cousin Tracy was just five years old.

“My aunt had just dropped her over to my grandmother's house before she went to work. [She] just got dropped off, and just a matter of what? I guess minutes later she was part of that tragedy,” said Daniels.

Then came the funeral services for his loved ones.

"I could remember being told we're going to have a funeral up at Tabernacle Baptist Church which included my grandmother, my father, and my cousin Tracy,” said Daniels.

One thing Victor did not get at 10 years old was grief counseling to deal with the incredible loss he suffered.

Now, Wichita native and WSU Social Sciences Professor Kevin Harrison wants to bring what people experienced and haven't yet talked about to life. "We believe there's a lot of trauma in the community to this day. And I think focusing on this, using the plane crash as a lens, it kind of gives an opportunity to voice some of this trauma,” said WSU Social Sciences Professor Kevin Harrison.

Harrison is producing a documentary focusing on how people dealt with the tragedy.

“We want to see if people had a chance to really properly deal with that trauma. One of the ladies we spoke with said they didn't send doctors, they didn't send psychologists. It was just like okay, just figure it out,” said Harrison.

The film is expected to be shown at a community event in late April where the plane crashed 58 years ago. The name of the documentary is The Silent Cries of Unborn Ghetto Children.
