A plane carrying a family from the Bahamas to Kansas went down, killing all of the passengers: Pilot Ronald Bramlage, 45, his wife Rebecca, 43, and their four children.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said the flight originated at Treasure Cay Airport in the Bahamas and landed at St. Lucie County Airport to clear customs. The plane left St. Lucie just after noon headed to Junction City, Kansas.

Judd identified the children as Brandon, 15; Boston, 13; Beau, 11 and Roxanne, 8.

The remains of the teenager, Boston, age 13, have not been located.

WTSP reports this eyewitness account from Joyce Trupiana, who says she and her husband Andy were home when the plane went down. Andy stepped outside and could only watch in horror.

“He said it was spiraling. It just sprialed down – went out of sight and then he heard the boom,” said Trupiana.

“Sounded like they were doing acrobatics or something and then heard a boom like a sonic boom like when the space shuttle flies over. And then – that’s all you heard,” says another Lake Wales resident Hughie Chumney.

The plane went down in a swampy area that is not easily accessible, officials said.

Rescuers and investigators used all-terrain vehicles to get to the scene.

“It’s a massive operation and massive undertaking,” Judd added.
