2 dead after small plane crashes in waters off Florida coast
DANIA BEACH - Florida authorities say two people were killed when a Cessna 172 that was flying south along Broward County's shoreline crashed into the Atlantic.
First responders found the downed small plane and two of its occupants off the coast of Dania Beach on Saturday morning.
Sheriff's spokesman Mike Jachles wrote on Twitter that two victims were found in the water.
The Coast Guard said authorities don't yet know how many people were on the plane, so they're still searching the waters for other potential plane occupants. The plane has a capacity of four.
The Coast Guard dispatched a boat from its station in Fort Lauderdale shortly after 10 a.m. to respond to the scene of the downed aircraft.
