A deadly plane crash took place in Miami on Saturday afternoon. One person has been reported dead and five others injured. The plane landed on a Miami bridge.

A small plane lost power in the air as it attempted to make an emergency landing on the Haulover Inlet Bridge of Miami.ย 

The plane narrowly flew between vehicles on the bridge beforeย colliding head-onย with an SUV. The plane hit two other vehicles while attempting to make the crash-landing.ย 

Videoย footage of the crash shows the plane engulfed by flames. The pilot of the craft, Narisco Torres, 36 years old, was declared dead on impact.ย Local 10ย reports two of Torresโ€™ relatives who were also in the plane to have survived the crash.ย 

As for some of the other people hurt in the crash,ย fiveย total sustained injuries.ย Local 10ย reported, โ€œAida Kazakova, 34, of Sunny Isles Beach, and her two small children, a 6-year-old boy, and a 2-year-old girl, were in one of the vehicles hit by the plane.โ€

Witnesses and bystanders jumped into action to aid the people struck by the plane. The scene of the crash is still being tended to.ย 

The cause of the plane losing power has yet to be determined. A spokesperson for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) stated, โ€œPart of the investigation will be to request radar data, weather information, air traffic control communication, airplane maintenance records, and the pilotโ€™s medical records.โ€

Another video of the disaster can be foundย here, from the Miami Herald. Some of theย videosย and details on the crash may be graphic to some readers.

Residents In New Jersey Urged To Stay Indoors During Spraying Of Toxic Chemicals

Residents in Central New Jersey are being asked to stay indoors on Thursday, 7 September (today,) and Monday, 11 September, due to the release of toxic chemicals in an attempt to mitigate a mosquito crisis in the region. The Mosquito Extermination Commission of Middlesex County announced the use of the chemicals Prallethrin (Sumithrin), Deltamethrin (DeltaGard), Malathion (Fyfanon), and Etofenprox (Zenivex) in the communities of Old Bridge, Monroe, East Brunswick, Helmetta, and Spotswood. The Mosquito Extermination Commission says, โ€œPlan your activities to limit time spent outside during times of possible insecticide treatments. Move your pets, their food, and water dishes inside during application. Also, bring clothing and childrenโ€™s toys inside. Whenever possible, remain indoors with windows closed and with window air conditioners on non-vent (closed to the outside air) and window fans turned off during spraying. Avoid direct contact with surfaces that are still wet from pesticide spraying. Do not allow children to play in areas that have been sprayed until they have completely dried (approximately one hour.)โ€ Weather permitting, the spraying will be performed between 6:30 PM and midnight. If it rains on 11 September, the county has scheduled the procedure for the following day. The Mosquito Extermination Commission further outlines, โ€œIf you must remain outdoors, avoid eye and skin contact with the spray. If you get spray in your eyes or on your skin, immediately flush and rinse with water. Consult your doctor if you think you are experiencing health effects from the spraying. People who suffer from chemical sensitivities or feel spraying may aggravate a preexisting health condition may consult their physician or local health department.โ€ More information regarding plans to spray for mosquitos can be found here:
