White said, "Joe is a pilot, a husband, father, grandfather, Christian and pro."
They boarded the plane and took off.
White said "We were at 6 or 7 thousand feet when he suddenly died"
So White had to act quickly.
He said, "I only knew how to talk on the radio so I called Miami air center and said I'm declaring an emergency, I need some one who knows how to fly a King Air 200, my pilot is deceased."
That's when White had to pull a miracle.
He said, "I turned around and told my wife and 2 daughters I love them and to start praying, I have something I have to do.''
White says air traffic control coached him all the way to the run way.
