Plane crashes into water, claiming 2 lives in Palm Beach Co.

PALM BEACH CO., FL – Two men flying a Piper PA28 lost their lives when the plane descended and crashed into a body of water Wednesday. 

WPTV said this collision happened before 2:15 p.m. near the North Palm Beach County General Aviation Airport, located at 11600 Aviation Road.

The National Transportation Safety Board said the plane was coming from a runway and then crashed into a marsh 20 feet deep. 

A Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office helicopter helped other first responders locate the men from the water. After first responders took the men out of the water, they then treated them for any injuries before they were rushed to a hospital, where they passed away once they arrived. 

First responders have not released the victim’s names at this time.
