Four Survive After Plane Crashes Into Water
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A kayaker waved down a couple on a fishing boat to get assistance for victims in a
plane crash. As the couple approached the kayaker, they saw four people wearing aviation
floatation devices. The couple pulled the four onto their boat, gave them
dry clothes, blankets, and had a heater in the cabin of the boat. They
sent out a mayday call to the Coast Guard who has reported that the plane
sank on impact. The people were taken to a hospital and treated for minor
injuries and hypothermia.
The plane belonged to Kenmore Air who stated that the plane was a de Havilland
Beaver and “the Beavers are meticulously maintained and prized for
their reliability.” The cause of the crash has not yet been reported,
but the survivors were prepared with their floatation devices.
Negligence either by part of the pilot, airline, aircraft’s maintenance
team, or air traffic controllers are most often responsible for aviation
accidents. Whoever has ownership in the crash the victims may be entitled
to the medical bills they will face. Statistically, the survival rate
for those in a plane crash is low due to the height and speed at which
an aircraft makes an impact.
