The fatal plane crash that occurred close to Half Moon Bay has resulted in the deaths of four people, one of whom has been named Isaac Zimmern, a resident of San Francisco who was 27 years old. The sad event took place on January 14, at approximately seven o’clock in the evening, when the relatively small aircraft, a Cozy Mark IV, crashed with Zimmern and three other people on board.
As a result of the confirmation of Zimmern’s presence on the tragic flight, his family disclosed that his lifelong partner, Emma Willmer-Shiles, along with another couple, were also on board the plane. On Friday, the bereaved family provided the San Francisco Chronicle with this information, which is quite upsetting. The family has asked the general public and the media to respect their privacy at this time of great sorrow, and they have refrained from sharing any additional information about the situation for the time being.
In a tragic turn of events, the several-day-long search and rescue operations were unsuccessful in locating the remaining passengers and crew members of the aircraft. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) took over the investigation into this tragic accident and has taken the initiative to lead the probe.
In a statement released Tuesday, the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office said that Emma Willmer-Shiles, also known by the name Perl, had been identified. Her deceased body was found in the sea, close to the location where the plane had crashed. The grieving family has experienced some sense of closure as a result of the recovery of her body; nonetheless, their anguish continues to be incalculable while they wait for information about the persons who have gone missing.
When the tragedy occurred, the Cozy Mark IV, which was a light aircraft that was manufactured from a kit and had four seats, was carrying a total of four people for its passengers. Since the investigation is still underway, the National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) goal is to ascertain the cause of the collision and provide answers to grieving families.
During this trying time, we want to express our thoughts and condolences to the families and friends of all of the victims.
