FBI reports that Lidle was the only person on the plane at the time of the crash and that Lidle did not survive. In total 2 people have been reported killed and sixteen people have been admitted to area hospitals with injuries sustained from the crash. Eleven of the sixteen injured are NY Firefighters, injuries are not known at this time. Witnesses state that the plane was flying “erratically” before crashing into the building.
