The Sulemans plane crashes over the Pacific Ocean. The Sulemans’ Beech A36 Bonanza went down shortly after takeoff from Pago Pago in American Samoa at about 10:15 p.m. Authorities were alerted to its location by signals from the flight’s emergency beacon system. The plane was found in pieces, according to a Coast Guard officer in Honolulu, with the body of Haris nearby. The Coast Guard say they are still looking for the father. Captain Tulele Laolagi:

We found a young boy still strapped to his seat. I think he was ejected from the plane, but it’s too early to tell.

Suleman’s sister:

With a trip like this, there’s always a risk, and they did prepare for that risk.
