The Central Kentucky medical community is mourning the lost of a respected Georgetown doctor and his wife.

Investigators say Doctor Narayan Venguswamy and his wife Jay Venguswamy were in their private plane Wednesday when it crashed in a parking lot outside Chicago.

The couple was flying from the Georgetown-Scott County Airport to Bolingbrook, Illinois.

Investigators say Jay Venguswamy, who was a passenger in the plane, died at the scene.

Doctor Narayan Venguswamy was piloting the plane.

The well-known surgeon worked at the Georgetown Community Hospital for 27 years.

His wife worked in his office at the hospital.
