Plane crash along the shore in front of Victoria House in San Pedro, spring 1991
I opened the Pizza Place that week of Spring Break. We watched it go in from the deck. 19 souls lost.
This was the day I moved to San Pedro. This plane had dropped me off an hour before, then went back to Belize City. It was on their return to San Pedro that the crash occurred. If my flight from the US had been just a few minutes late, I would have been on this flight.
I worked at Victoria house, I do so massages on the beach, when that happened so sad never forget the impression.
That was the Easter Monday 1991, my first Easter in Ambergris Caye. We saw the plane crash landing at Mar de Tumbo, and immediately tried to assist but everything was in vain.
