Hawaii — There hasn’t been much information released about the small plane crash that happened just off the coast of Hawaii last Wednesday, December 11. Authorities have identified the woman killed in the crash as Loretta Fuddy, the Director for the Hawaii Department of Health.
According to the news coverage, Fuddy was a passenger on a Cessna Grand Caravan last Wednesday along with 8 others when the plane experienced some engine troubles. The plane was headed to Honolulu, but didn’t get very far when engine failure occurred.
The pilot crash-landed in the ocean and Fuddy was killed, though the pilot and other passengers were able to survive. The location of the crash and the waves at the time made a recovery mission for the wrecked plane all but impossible, officials later said.
It’s not clear why the Cessna’s engine failed.
