The occupants were identified as Cristian Sapun and Damian Barreira, both Argentine nationals.

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.
