Plane crash in Costa Rica:12 DEAD

5a4989bfe99d1.JPGOn Sunday 31st december, a small plane crashed in northwest Costa Rica killing 12 people, including 10 US citizens.

 

The single-engine turboprop’s two Costa Rican pilots also died in the crash, President Luis Guillermo Solis Rivera said in a statement posted on social media and there were no survivors.

 

Costa Rica’s Ministry of Public Security posted several images of the wreckage on its official Facebook page, showing the plane engulfed in flames in a wooded area, with smoke billowing from charred rubble.

 

It was not immediately clear what caused the crash, which occurred early Sunday afternoon in Nandayure, a region in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste province. Authorities said they were focusing on recovering the victims’ bodies and would begin an investigation into the cause of the crash first thing Monday.

 

Costa Rica’s President expressed his condolences on Twitter. “The government vows to do everything necessary to help the victims’ family members in whatever they need in this difficult moment and sends them the solidarity of all the Costa Rican people,” Solis said.
