New York Plane Crashes Near Jamaica – Another Shot Down in Iran?

Fact checked

Here is an update on the unresponsive plane from earlier today:

Washington Post reports:

Fighter jets were dispatched by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) on Friday to escort an unresponsive small aircraft flying over the Atlantic Ocean, but the plane continued and eventually crashed near Jamaica, officials said.

The unresponsive plane crashed into the ocean about 14 miles off of the coast of Port Antonio, Jamaica, at about 2:15 p.m., according to the FAA. The agency said it was unable to confirm the number of people on board.

NORAD said that the situation may have involved hypoxia, or a low level of oxygen.

The plane was believed to belong to Larry Glazer, a Rochester developer, according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.

We are also hearing reports about a plane being shot down in Iran. So far, we cannot confirm the story. Tweets suggest a reporter was silenced during a press conference with the U.S. State department. One Tweet says:

Press Conf w/ State Dept – @cnn cut out interview after reporter asked about a plane being forced 2 land in Iran w/ US citizen
