Four passengers have died in a Fort Lauderdale plane crash today in Florida. The Piper PA-31 that took off from Orlando Executive airport was trying to land on the West Cypress Creek Road airport at around 4.30 p.m. when it crashed and exploded.
The plane nosedived into the woods, its location causing a problem for responders to arrive at the scene. The flight had 4 passengers on board, all presumed dead. Their identities are not yet revealed.
An eye witness of the crash, Bavon Sylvain said, “It was a large aftermath and loud explosion, a big fireball.”
It was quite clear that the plane crash victims wouldn’t be able to survive such crash.
The FAA released a statement saying the airport will be open, but runway 13 will be closed for some time due to its proximity to the site. It also mentions that the pilot had declared an emergency before attempting to land.
The plane did not hit any pedestrians or animals when it crashed.
