Anahuac — No Survivors After Cargo Plane Crashes on Trinity Bay
Posted on Sunday, February 24th, 2019 at 8:13 pm by Williams Hart
At around 12:40 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, 2019, a cargo plane crashed in the Jack’s Pocket area of Trinity Bay, near Anahuac, killing all three people who were on board.
According to police reports, a civilian called the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office to report seeing a plane go down in the water. The plane was Atlas Air Flight 3591, and it was on its way to George Bush Intercontinental Airport from Miami when it crashed. There were three people inside the aircraft, and according to investigators, no one survived from this accident.
Two bodies have been recovered from the water, and one has been identified as Captain Sean Archuleta, a pilot for Mesa Airlines since 2013 who was riding in the jump seat of the aircraft to travel to Houston to fly another aircraft.
It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the people on board in this aircraft. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered a similar fate because of an aviation accident. It is noted that airplane and helicopter crashes are significantly a lot more dangerous and devastating than other vehicular accidents simply because of the extreme heights and speeds involved with them. Serious physical injuries and emotional and psychological damage are the expected outcomes of an aviation accident.
Some of the common causes of aviation accidents are air traffic controller error, negligence by the airline, airplane or helicopter pilot error, pilot intoxication, and helicopter or airplane defects and malfunction.
Aside from the devastating nature of aviation accidents, cases involving them are substantially complex, and as a result, a trusted attorney is needed to help the victim and their family. So, if you’re a victim of an aviation accident, or you knows someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help.
