Two people were killed early Sunday morning after a plane accident in the Florida Keys.

Two bodies were fished out of the water near Rachael Key after their 1961 Cessna 210 Centurion airplane crashed, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.


A boater spotted one of the bodies just after 9 a.m. and called the Coast Guard.

Neither victim has been identified.

Officials believe the two victims were the only two on board the plane, but the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) dive team is still investigating the scene.

The plane was scheduled to take off from Marathon Airport around 9 a.m. and was headed to Savannah, Georgia.
