  • Plane Crashes And Burns In Costa Rica, Believed To Have 12 Aboard

The Costa Rican government says a plane crash in Costa Rica on Sunday has killed all 12 people aboard. The family lived in Belleair, along the Gulf of Mexico. It remained unclear who the 10th victim was.

The crash occurred near Punta Islita, in Costa Rica's Guanacaste province, officials said.

"We are in utter shock and disbelief right now", Bruce Steinberg's sister, Tamara Steinberg Jacobson, wrote on Facebook. On Monday, Rabbi Jacob Luski of Congregation B'nai Israel in Saint Petersburg, Florida, said that relatives had informed him of the deaths of Mitchell and Leslie Weiss and their two children, 19-year-old Hannah and 16-year-old Ari.

"It is a tragedy that the Drs". "They were a wonderful family who will be missed".

Sunday's (Dec. 31) statement says the plane belongs to Nature Air and had taken off nearby. He said investigators were looking into possible causes.

Cubillo said the same plane was delayed in arriving that morning in Punta Islita from San Jose due to strong winds. It was unclear what caused the crash.

Cubillo also reportedly described the pilot, Juan Manuel Retana, as an experienced professional.

One of the victims was the cousin of Costa Rican ex-President Laura Chinchilla, the former leader said on her Twitter account. Nature Air did not respond to phone and email messages.
