Three people were killed in a plane crash Thursday not far from Vero Beach , Fla., according to news reports by Inquisitr and WPTV.
The Cessna 310 left from Okeechobee en route to Bartow when a Miami control tower lost contact with it around 4:30 p.m.
Rescue teams mounted a search for the plane Thursday, and due to bad weather stopped the hunt and resumed it Friday. They found the aircraft 20 miles from Vero Beach, Inquisitr reported. It was located in the Fort Drum Conservation Area.
The crash site was a marsh, so rescuers were brought down to the area by a United States Coast Guard helicopter. The bodies of the three victims were then retrieved.
They were not immediately identified. National Transportation Safety Board officials told Inquisitr that they wouldn’t have a preliminary cause of the crash until the end of the month.
