Costa Rica News – The father of the copilot who was killed in an airplane crash on December 31st in Guanacaste was himself commanding a plane from Chile to Costa Rica when he received the terrible news.

The whole family is going crazy after receiving the news. How is one to cope? She was so young and died so tragically. The anguish they feel cannot be expressed in words.
They are changed forever.
