Two killed in Florida Plane Crash
Details about the Plane Crash in Florida
NFW Daily News is reporting that emergency responders were called to the coastline between Henderson Beach State Park and the Walton County line after a man who was jogging and saw the plane going down into the gulf.
Emergency crews in the water, on the shore, and in the air searched the area for over two hours before they finally recovered the woman’s body. Roe’s body was found at around 9 p.m., and the man’s (Shumberg’s) body was recovered about 45 minutes later.
The National Transportation Safety Board is working to determine the cause of the accident, and the Federal Aviation Administration will be investigating the crash.
Some people in the area in which the plane went down indicated that they heard the roar of the plane’s engine, but that they didn’t think anything was wrong or out of the ordinary until they saw emergency crews conducting their search.
Authorities report that the plane went down into the Gulf at about 6:52 p.m. The plane was registered to Electrical Training USA – a company owned by Shumberg who was also a licensed pilot.
