A small plane that crashed into a New York City high-rise building belonged to Lidle, according to multiple reports.
ESPN has reported at 4:50 p.m. that Lidle was the pilot of the plane and died in the crash.
Lidle is one of two confirmed dead, New York police said, reports ESPN.
Nobody on board the flight survived, according to reports.
