PHOENIX (AP) — A 22-year-old disabled Phoenix man is among the nine people killed at the Reno air show crash.

The Arizona Republic says Michael Wogan, who suffered from congenital muscular dystrophy, was sitting with his father in an area for wheelchairs at the air show's VIP boxes when the plane crashed in that area Friday.

The Wogan family told the paper Saturday http://bit.ly/nXr7my that the Arizona State University graduate was killed and his father, Bill Wogan, lost and eye and some fingers and suffered serious facial injuries.

The family was especially proud when Wogan, who weighed 90 pounds, graduated in May, magna cum laude, with a degree in finance.

The newspaper says he owned a web hosting company and had just started a social media marketing company.
