DENVER -- The widow of a man who piloted one of the planes hijacked on 9/11 died accidentally, a Colorado coroner said Friday.

Sandy Dahl, 52, died on May 25 in Lakewood of acute heart failure due to the combined effects of alcohol and multiple prescription drugs, Jefferson County chief deputy coroner Carl Blesch said.

He said a heart condition right ventricular dysplasia was a contributing cause in her death.

The autopsy report states that anti-depression, anti-anxiety, painkiller and tranquilizer drugs were found in her blood stream.

Her husband, Capt. Jason Dahl, of Ken Caryl Ranch was the captain of United Flight 93 as it traveled from Newark, N.J., to San Francisco and went down in Pennsylvania as passengers fought back against terrorist hijackers. It's believed the four terrorists likely wanted to crash the Boeing 757-222 into the White House or Capitol in Washington, D.C.

If there was no happiness left in her life,only sorrow
she took the trip to the spirit world to be with him, true love knows no bounds....hopefully
Better than living in a ditch of unhappiness and sad memories.
