Ministry of Public Security of Costa Rica also took to social media to post several images from the crash site, showing burning remains of the aircraft.
The accident cause is currently unknown. The media points out those heavy winds earlier that day caused the plane’s pilots to land in a different airport, delaying the arrival at the Punta Islita Airport from which the fatal flight took off.
