Apparently, they had purchased the plane in Miami, United States, and were headed for Argentina, making a stop in Costa Rica.

The Cessna-type plane left the Tobías Bolaños airport minutes before it crashed. The pilot lost control, went through the Torres river canyon and crashed on the street, a few meters from an apartment building.

The occupants were transferred by private emergency units to the Trauma Hospital of the National Insurance Institute (INS), despite they had no visible injuries.

Bomberos (firefighters) controlled the fuel spill, avoiding causing a fire.

The plane’s registration is N6941G.
