Small Plane Crash on Fla. Beach Kills Father, Injures Daughter

Monday, 28 July 2014 06:29 AM

 A Georgia man is dead and his 9-year-old daughter is in the hospital with critical injuries after they were hit by a small plane that made an emergency landing on a Florida Gulf Coast beach.

The Piper Cherokee crash-landed Sunday afternoon, losing a wheel, damaging a wind and smashing a propeller.

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office identified the victims as 36-year-old Ommy Irizarry and his daughter Oceana.

Officials told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune the victims were either hit by the plane or its debris.

Irizarry died at the scene. His daughter was airlifted to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg.

Officials say the plane was trying to land on Caspersen Beach after making a distress call to Venice Airport at 2:45 p.m. The beach is south of the airport.
