4 Americans, 1 Canadian Die After Their Plane Crashes in Honduras: 'The Entire Town Is in Mourning'

4 Americans, 1 Canadian Die After Their Plane Crashes in Honduras: 'The Entire Town Is in Mourning'

Five people died in a small plane crash off the coast of a Honduran island over the weekend.

Four Americans and one Canadian pilot were on the aircraft, a Honduran armed forces spokesman Jose Domingo Meza said, according to the New York Times.

The plane was heading from the island Roatan, a popular tourist destination, to the port of Trujillo and plunged into the Atlantic shortly after takeoff, according to the report.

Police and firefighter divers in rescue boats responded to the crash, recovering four bodies and taking one person to a hospital, the Honduran military said in a statement to the Associated Press.

The only survivor died shortly after from internal injuries.

While the names of the Americans were not released, Honduran authorities said that the pilot was Canadian Patrick Forseth. He was known for developing tourism activities in the area.

Forseth’s sister Jenna Forseth confirmed that he died in the crash to the Vancouver Sun. She described her brother as “well-loved.”

“He lived and breathed airplanes,” she said to Global News. “He’s really experienced and anyone who’s flown with him is really, really impressed with him.”

Forseth’s parents, Larry and Linda, own a resort in the Trujillo area, the outlet reported. Jenna said that the “entire town is in mourning” after the crash.

“He was a pretty darn good dude,” she added to Global News. 

The outlet also reports that Patrick was an owner of the Carivida Club Cafe in Trujillo, and on Saturday, the restaurant’s Facebook page posted a picture of their logo with a black ribbon, along with the message: “R.I.P. Daniel Patrick Forsooth.”

The U.S. State Department did not immediately reply to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

While the cause of the crash remains unknown, this is not the first plane to crash in the area.

Johnny Depp Accuses Ex-Wife Amber Heard of Having 'Painted-On Bruises': 'I Was the Victim'

Johnny Depp Accuses Ex-Wife Amber Heard of Having 'Painted-On Bruises': 'I Was the Victim'

Johnny Depp is accusing his ex-wife Amber Heard of abusing him in his first declaration as part of his $50 million defamation lawsuit against her.

The Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald actor, 55, submitted a statement giving his first-person account of his relationship with the Aquaman actress, 33, on Monday, in court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

“I have denied Ms. Heard’s allegations vehemently since she first made them in May 2016 when she walked into court to obtain a temporary restraining order with painted-on bruises that witnesses and surveillance footage show she did not possess each day of the preceding week,” Depp began. “I will continue to deny them for the rest of my life.”

“I never abused Ms. Heard or any other woman,” he added.

While Depp denied abusing Heard, he claimed in his declaration that he had been the victim of abuse conducted by Heard.

“She was the perpetrator, and I was the victim,” he alleged. “While mixing prescription amphetamines and non-prescription drugs with alcohol, Ms. Heard committed innumerable acts of domestic violence against me, often in the presence of a third-party witness, which in some instances caused me serious bodily harm.”

Heard’s lawyer Eric George denied the allegations against the actress, saying in a statement obtained by PEOPLE, “The evidence in this case is clear: Johnny Depp repeatedly beat Amber Heard.”

“The increasingly desperate attempts by Mr. Depp and his enablers to revive his career by initiating baseless litigation against so many people once close to him — his former lawyers, former managers, and his former spouse — are not fooling anyone.”

George continued, “In light of the important work done by the #TimesUp movement highlighting the tactics abusers use to continue to traumatize survivors, neither the creative community nor the public will be gaslit by Mr. Depp’s baseless blame-the-victim conspiracy theories.”

In his declaration, Depp claimed Heard “hit, punched, and kicked me,” adding, “She also repeatedly and frequently threw objects into my body and head, including heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls, and paint

Khloé Kardashian Gives Off Major Barbie Vibes in Sexy Pink Activewear for Good American Shoot

Khloé Kardashian Gives Off Major Barbie Vibes in Sexy Pink Activewear for Good American Shoot

Khloé Kardashian is a Barbie girl in a Barbie world!

On Monday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 34, shared behind-the-scenes videos and photos of herself channeling her inner Barbie for a new Good American shoot, promoting her activewear line.

For the look, Kardashian showed off her famous curves in a neon pink sports bra paired with matching biker shorts, which just dropped online. She styled her platinum blonde hair in a high ponytail and wore reflective sunglasses that featured a pink rim.

In the first shot, shared on her Instagram Stories, Kardashian posed alongside a neon-colored Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV.

Next, she was photographed sitting on top of the vehicle, this time wearing a neon windbreaker off her shoulders.

Kardashian later revealed that the luxurious prop was actually her big sister Kim Kardashian West‘s car — a gift from husband Kanye West last year.

“Thank you Keeks for loaning me your bad ass truck for my @GoodAmerican shoot,” Kardashian shared on her Instagram Stories, using Kim’s nickname.

Kardashian also shared a clip, which showed celebrity hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons using a leaf blower on her hair, adding a little extra drama to the shoot.

“@AndrewFitzsimons really should get into landscaping with his blower,” Kardashian wrote over the video.

Of course, this isn’t the first time in recent weeks that Kardashian has flaunted her fit frame in a neon ensemble.
