FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (WFLX) - We now know the names of the four people aboard the crashed medical flight that was headed for Cozumel, Mexico.
Mexican authorities have identified the two pilots as José Galván and Josué Moreno. The passengers are identified as Fernando Nieto and Mariana Isunza.
As far as rescue efforts go, the Coast Guard is dealing with a moving target. The search has now been expanded to include an area of about 30 square miles. The plane crashed three miles northeast of Fort Lauderdale.
Overnight, crews pulled the bodies of a man and woman from the water.
The Coast Guard has about a dozen vessels on the water, and they're searching by air, as well. "Time is always working against us," said Chief Petty Officer Ryan Doss.
The depth is about 60 feet divers, so divers are helping comb the ocean floor below. Debris is being reported as far north as Boynton Beach.
Doss said he expects it to come ashore Wednesday. He's asking beach goers not to touch it; instead, call police if you spot it.
Meanwhile, we're getting our first listen at the pilot's frantic call for help to the air traffic control tower just seconds before the plane crashed into the ocean.
"You going back to Ft. Lauderdale?" air traffic control asked the pilot.
"We have an engine failure," the pilot responded.
"Maintain 4,000, and turn left heading 330," said air traffic control.
"It's not possible. We're going to do a 180," the pilot responded.
