Four pressumed dead after airplane crash

Authorities believe two small planes collided in midair above the Florida Everglades during the weekend and they were searching Sunday for four people presumed dead (USA Today).

The planes' wreckage was spotted Sunday morning about 25 miles west of Fort Lauderdale after the planes took off from Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood airports on Saturday afternoon. But no bodies had been found by Sunday night in the swampy area accessible only by airboat (USA Today).

Each plane was carrying two occupants on training flights from a local flight school, the Broward County Sheriff's Department said in a statement.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
