*Body Believed to be That of Missing Plane Passenger Found

By NBCMiami.com staff

The body of the passenger who reportedly fell out of a small plane into the ocean near Key Biscayne has likely been found, according to Miami-Dade Police.

Police said they presume a body found in a mangrove area just south of SW 184 Street at 10:30 a.m. Saturday is 42-year-old Gerardo Nales, but authorities said they are waiting for official identification from the Medical Examiner's Office.

Nales fell out of Piper PA46 Thursday about eight miles southeast of Tamiami Airport with no parachute, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The pilot was identified to NBC 6 as Felipe Fons, a student at Dean's International Aviation flight school at Tamiami Airport. Police have not indicated any evidence of foul play and the pilot was very cooperative with the investigation, authorities said.

Oh, that's good. I feel pretty stupid for jumping to the conclusion of 'murder'.

That's the first thing I thought of.

Body found off South Florida shore confirmed as that of man who fell out of private plane: autopsy

The body found off the coast of South Florida was confirmed to be the remains of a man who reportedly fell from a private plane, officials said.

An autopsy confirmed Monday that the body found in an area of mangroves was that of Gerardo Nales, 42, who disappeared after he plummeted 2,000 feet from the single-prop plane as it neared Kendall-Tamiami Executive Airport outside Miami on Thursday.


The Piper PA46 plane was traveling about 200 miles when Nales, of Key Biscayne, Fla., either jumped or fell from an open door, officials said.

The pilot, who was not identified, immediately radioed a “Mayday” call to an air traffic controller, telling him his single passenger had fallen.

“I have a door ajar and a passenger that fell down,” the pilot said, according to a recording on LiveATC.net. “I’m six miles from Tamiami.”

“You said you’ve got a passenger that fell out of your plane?” the air traffic controller responded.



“That’s correct, sir,” the pilot said. “He opened the back door and he just fell out the plane.”

It was still not clear how the door was opened, but investigators said they have found no evidence to suggest foul play.
