An eyewitness, according to media reports, was the one who raised the alarm after the accident, announcing: “The plane has crashed – call the coast guard”, while casual fishermen and divers rushed to the scene, but despite their efforts, all four bodies, including pilot Robert Sachs, were found dead.
