1 dog the only survivor of New York small plane crash

On a recent Saturday morning, a small plane reportedly took off from Long Island MacArthur Airport. The only passengers aboard were two people and one dog. Not long after, the plane went down in the vicinity of Mattituck, New York, near the amusement area known as Harbes Family Farm. The fiery crash that resulted killed the two human passengers. Only the dog survived. 

Witnesses describe the plane flying low over the Harbes Family Farm property prior to the collision. It is not known how the dog managed to escape the wreckage, but a local farmer found it shortly thereafter. The plane was on fire when first responders arrived at the scene. Authorities have transported the remains to the coroner's office in Suffolk County. They have not released the identities of the two passengers pending notification of family members. 

Because the passengers' identities are not known, it is unclear what, if any, relationship they had, nor is it certain to whom the dog belonged. Authorities have also not released any information regarding what will happen to the dog now. Its age, breed and sex remain unspecified.

The cause of the crash is not known, but the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration have each launched an investigation. No information is available as to the plane's intended destination. 

It can be difficult for victims and family members alike to cope with the effects of a small plane crash. Some may find it helpful to contact an attorney to ask about legal options.
