The details (from wikipedia)


John Stephenson (14 May 1937 – 14 October 2014) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Carlton in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

The son of Jack Stephenson, who also played for Carlton, he was recruited from Benalla, but played only a single league game (in 1958).

In 1989 he was a passenger on United Airlines Flight 811, but survived, although nine people died after being blown out of the plane when the cargo door failed mid-flight. Stephenson was seated 11 rows behind where the fuselage was breached. In October 2014, Stephenson was killed when the Van's RV-6 light aircraft he was piloting crashed into a house in the Melbourne suburb of Chelsea.
