Seven people died in a plane crash on Saturday morning (29) in Tennessee, USA, including actor Joe Lara, who became famous for playing the role of Tarzan on TV. He was 58.
In addition to Lara, his wife, Gwen Shamblin Lara – the founder of a Christian diet program – boarded the plane, Gwen’s son-in-law Brandon Hannah, and couple Jennifer and David Martin, and Jessica and Jonathan Walters.
The victims were aboard the Cessna 501 when they fell into the lake in a community near Nashville just after taking a flight to Smyrna Airport.
The plane was scheduled for the International Airport in Palm Beach, Florida, and crashed around 11 a.m. Saturday (local time). Authorities are still searching for the bodies of the victims.
Local officials said Sunday that diving teams recovered several parts of the plane and human remains in the lake. According to Capt. John Ingle of Rutherford County Rescue, the debris is about 800 meters wide.
The search operation should be resumed on Monday (31).
