2 OCPD Officers killed in plane crash

Yesterday, a small plane crashed into the Atlantic off the coast at 140th St. Today they recovered the bodies of two Ocean City Police Officers who were in that plane. My most sincere sympathy goes out to their families and to the town of Ocean City. Such a tragic loss. God bless them.

A tragic loss indeed. The Sea Rocket captain saw it go down and promptly sink, he piloted the boat to the location to "mark" the spot for emergency personnel.


It happened only 1500 feet from the beach. I imagine the FAA will change the rules for planes flying so close to the beach - such as the banner planes.

My Thoughts & Prayers go out to the families and friends of the two officers as well as their fellow officers and Ocean City community as a whole, what a tragic loss!
