A Hawaii plane crash Wednesday left a high-profile figure the only one dead out of nine passengers on the aircraft. Health director, Loretta Fuddy, was killed when the plane went down after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at 3:15 p.m. local time. Fuddy approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate two years ago, NBC News reported Dec. 12.
The aircraft Fuddy was flying in was a Cessna Grand Caravan. All eight other passengers were rescued, according to Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air. He told NBC News there were no indications as to what caused the Hawaii plane crash.
It was two years ago when Fuddy approved a waiver request that allowed Obama to obtain certified copies of his birth certificate that were signed by the doctor who delivered him, Obama’s mother, and the local registrar.
The U.S. Coast Guard sent out two helicopters and a Hercules plane to rescue passengers at the crash site -- about a mile from shore. Rescue swimmers were also on the scene. Three passengers were winched onto helicopters and safely rescued.
It wouldn't be too surprising if conspiracy theories begin unraveling surrounding the Hawaii plane crash since the lone victim was someone connected to a controversial issue having to do with the President of the United States. Naturally it seems ridiculous, but that has never stopped anyone before from assuming the worst.
