Plane Crash Kills 4 In The Bahamas

Mon., April 14, 1997, midnight

A small plane crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off a tiny island in the Bahamas, killing all four Americans on board, including three private pilots.

Their single-engine Beechcraft 36 slammed into a rocky shoal Saturday about 25 yards off Crooked Island about 250 miles southeast of Nassau.

The U.S. State Department identified the dead as Janet Hunter of Orlando, Fla., Frank Pocher of Hopkinton, Mass., Robert Press of Natick, Mass., and Sheldon Rothstein of Framingham, Mass.
