Miramar plane crash: 2 dead after plane crashes on roof of Florida home

Two people aboard a small airplane died Monday after their plane crashed into a home in South Florida, near Miramar, according to a spokesperson for the Miramar Police Department.

Helicopter video showed the plane tangled in electrical wires and partially resting on the roof of a home, which was located on Jamaica Drive.

Tania Rues, public information officer for Miramar police, said two men were aboard the plane and died in the crash.

They were identified Tuesday as Antony Yen, 34, of Orlando, and Jordan Travis Hall, 32, of West Park.

A woman and a child were inside the home and were not hurt, Rues said.

Rues said, citing Broward County Aviation, that the plane departed North Perry Airport Monday morning, but was not based at the airport. It's not clear where the plane's intended destination was.

The bodies of both men were removed from the plane late Monday. However, the plane will remain at the scene until the NTSB completes its investigation. 


Both the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will investigate the cause of the crash.
