Ommy Irizarry, a 36-year-old man from Puerto Rico, was killed Sunday by a small plane that crash-landed on a beach in Venice, Fla., the Associated Press reported. On Tuesday, his 9-year-old daughter Oceana also succumbed to her injuries.
Irizarry was celebrating his ninth wedding anniversary with his wife Rebecca and their children on the Florida Gulf Coast beach near Sarasota.
Hours before his death, Irizarry wrote about how much he loved his wife and thanked her for being with him for nine years. "(I) can't wait to see what the next 100 have in store for us," he said in a Facebook message.
One of Irizarry's photos of the family holiday showed the words "I <3 Mom + Dad" inscribed on the beach by their kids.
After the plane crash, his wife Rebecca wrote on Facebook, "We need prayers, now! Please stop and pray for Ommy and Oceana."
