Fatal Plane Crash Witnessed by Singer Leann Rimes
A fatal plane crash that left one person dead and two others injured was witnessed by country singer Leann Rimes and comedian Kevin Nealon.
The small plane which had taken off from Mexico crashed and burst into flames yesterday as it landed at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport, which serves the famous Colorado ski resort.
Co-pilot Carranza Brabata, 54, died while a pilot and passenger were both injured.
After witnessing the crash, “How Do I Live” singer Leann took to Twitter to express her shock.
She said: “So sad! Horrible plane crash we just saw happen at the Aspen airport.”
Actor and comedian Nealon added: “Horrible plane crash here at Aspen airport. Exploded into flames as it was landing. I think it was a private jet.
“Fire trucks and other emergency vehicles still at scene. No word on survivors or who was on the jet but I can’t imagine there are survivors.”
Officials said the plane had crashed as it attempted to land, and the airport would be closed until further notice.
