A family of five Americans vacationing in Costa Rica was among the victims of a New Year’s Eve plane crash that killed all 12 beings on board, investigators and local media have revealed.

The tiny aircraft carrying 10 American tourists and two neighbourhood crew members crashed and burst into sparks in a wooded arena in in Guanacaste , northwest Costa Rica, the government reported Sunday.

Five of the victims were identified as Americans Bruce, Irene, Matthew, William and Zachary Steinberg, Diario Las Americas reported. Media reports said the family was from Scarsdale, N.Y.

Other martyrs were identified by Costa Rica Hoy as Thibault Astruc, Amanda Geissler, Charles Palmer, Leslie Weiss, Sherry Wuu and aviators Emma Ramos and Juan Manuel Retana.

The Primary American nation’s Public Safety Ministry affixed photographs and video of the slam area picturing burning wreckage. All that was left of the plane was a charred, smoldering mass of fiery debris.

The plane had taken off from a local runway and was heading to the Juan Santamaria International Airport.

The Costa Rica Star reported that the Nature Air aircraft had troubles soon after takeoff, disintegrated in the mountains and immediately caught shell, according to witnesses.

Rescue squads could not arrive at the background quickly because it was in a remote province. Officers in the field confirmed that nobody was strong enough to survive the crash.

Retana, one of the captains, was a cousin of Costa Rica’s former President Laura Chinchilla, Diario Las Americas added.

Nature Air did not respond to telephone and email messages.
