INDIANAPOLIS | Media outlets have identified the pilot and other victims of a small plane crash Sunday in the Bahamas that claimed the life of a Valparaiso-area woman.
The Indianapolis Star reported Anthony Wishart, 59, of Fishers, was piloting the single-engine Cirrus SR22 that crashed Sunday in waters off Grand Bahama island.
KPHO-TV in Phoenix reported the crash also killed Glen and Leslie Steiner, of Mesa, Ariz.
Cynthia Mierzwa, of Union Township, was the fourth person aboard the plane that crashed during a sightseeing flight.
Funeral arrangements for Mierzwa are pending the return of her body. Crete Funeral Home will handle arrangements.
Meachelle Wishart, the pilot's sister-in-law, told the Star that he and his wife, Diane, were visiting the Bahamas as part of a trip that also took them to Florida and Hilton Head Island, S.C., where he owned property.
She said Anthony Wishart had about two decades' experience as a pilot.
