Plane crashes, kills passengers and crew on board in Haiti

 

In Haiti, southwest of the capital Port-au-Prince, a private jet crash killed all six people on board, including two American missionaries.

According to the New Telegraph, the plane crashed over the weekend while en way from Port-au-Prince to Jacmel on the southern coast.

According to the publication, the National Civil Aviation Office (NCAO) issued a statement, and the cause of the crash was not immediately known.

Trent Hostelter, 35, and John Miller, 43, both American citizens, died in the incident, according to the US-based group Gospel to Haiti, which also released a notification on its Facebook page.

The identities of the other four passengers were not immediately released by officials.

Hostelter’s wife and three children escaped death after they boarded a smaller plane, leaving him and Miller to catch the next plane.

“When the second plane didn’t show up, they were very concerned and soon heard that the plane had gone down somewhere near Leogane. A search team was formed and sent out and they located the plane early this morning and confirmed that all 6 people were killed,” the group’s Facebook post said.
