"You're Gonna Die Up There" Florida Family - Including Two Children - Die In Plane Crash As They Traveled To Georgia For A Funeral

Florida family - including two children - die in plane crash as they traveled to Georgia for a funeral

A small plane crashed Friday in rural Georgia, killing all five members of a Florida family on board, who were traveling to a funeral in Indiana. Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills told local news outlets no one survived the afternoon crash about 100 miles (161 kilometers) southeast of Atlanta. Sills identified the victims as Larry Ray Pruitt, 67, of Morriston, Florida; Shawn Charles Lamont, 41, of Gainesville, Florida; his wife Jody Rae Lamont, 43; and their two children, six-year-old Jayce and four-year-old Alice. Larry was Jody's father. Pruitt owned and was the pilot of the plane. The Federal Aviation Administration said the Piper PA31-T was flying from Williston, Florida, to Newcastle, Indiana.  Tracy Carter, a Milledgeville resident, told The Union-Recorder he saw a plane circling the area and catch fire. Parts of the plane flew off and landed in the nearby field and he said he heard a loud boom.  Emergency crews responded, putting out flames in a wooded area. Source
