On the afternoon of July 8, 2000, David Heim died in a Cessna plane crash. He is 

Married to Juliette, who is his angel, who at that time was mom to 6 week old twins.

When his wife entered the hospital where he had been pronounced dead-on-arrival, with his twin babies, his heart miraculously resumed beating as if it recognized her presence. He woke up on day 40. His Pilot flatlined, and was also pronounced dead, 10 days after being in a coma, he woke up.

As a goodwill gesture when he became Executive Director of USA Bobsled, he helped create the Jamaican Bobsled Federation which was portrayed in the Disney movie, "Cool Runnings."
