Plane Crash Witnesses Struggle Emotionally - Eric Alvarez

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--  Bellevue YMCA patrons and staff are struggling emotionally after witnessing the plane crash that killed four people Monday.

"You can't in a million years prepare yourself for something like this happening, said Jessica Fain, senior vice president of marketing at YMCA of Middle Tennessee.  It was so random and such a close call, that I think people are just wrestling with the gravity of what occurred."

Fain says  the biggest concern is for the families of the victims, Glenn Elaine Mull, their daughter Amy Harter, 40, and granddaughter Samantha Harter, 16.

But the YMCA is also taking care of its own staff and patrons.

"We have actually had our chaplain as well as some YMCA counselors available for employees who did want to talk about the experience, Fain said.  We'll continue to have those available for all of our employees as well as members when they return to the facility."

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board were still on the scene Wednesday, while police kept people away.

I'm still not able to take my car, said Rachel Harwood Wednesday morning.

Harwood was inside the YMCA when the plane went down.  The crash damaged several cars in the parking lot, which made them part of the investigation.

Harwood had to leave her phone her purse and her work badge in the car from Monday afternoon until Wednesday morning.

"It's been an inconvenience to me but really it could have been a lot worse for me and everybody else in the area, everybody that was at the "Y" that night," Harwood said.

Fain told Fox 17 she expected the building to re-open to the public Thursday.
