Seven travelers and two crew members of a private passenger plane were killed in a stream crash at Las Americas Airport in Santo Domingo on Wednesday December 15.
Among the seven who died was 38 year old Puerto Rican music producer Jose Angel Hernandez, who was with his significant other (wife) and son Jayden Hernandez. Famously called “Flow La Movie”, he and his family died as the private airplane crashed while making an emergency landing at Las Americas Airport in the Dominican Republic’s capital Santo Domingo.
Of the people in question, six were foreign nationals and one was Dominican, however the identities of the other six travelers were not known.
Hernandez was primarily known for his hit tune “Te Bote.” His passing started messages of sympathies and remembrance from various Puerto Rican and other Latin artistes, including hotshot J Balvin and popular pop artist Ricardo Montaner.
The flight was in transit to Florida from La Isabela International Airport in the Dominican Republic when it made the emergency landing and crashed only 15 minutes after departure, as indicated by Flightradar 24.
The long reach Gulfstream GIVSP stream was headed to Miami. The cause of the accident or the unfortunate landing isn’t yet known.
