0:25 pastor victor Willis - Englewood united Methodist church

1:18 Tim Wellman - victims friend

It was a simple sightseeing tour over Englewood.

One that went horribly wrong.

Take sot

Victor Willis

Englewood united Methodist church

I send my heartfelt apologies to the irizarry family for my role in this tragic accident.

With pilot Karl Kokomoor's wife and daughter by his side- pastor victor Willis relays the series of tragic events that claimed the lives of army veteran ommy irizarry and his young daughter oceana.

Take sot

Willis

I remember flying over Dog Beach and making a conscious decision to steer water ward and past a group of people there.

It was just before 300 Sunday afternoon when kokomoor radioed in a distress call with his passenger on board-

His plane was not responding.

NATS 911

kokomoor says he was left with a split second decision- and glided onto the sand of caspersen beach - an area he believed was clear of people.

Take sot

Willis

The plane hit the water with the nose down to rest at water's edge. It was only after I exited the plane did I realize there were people on the beach. I never saw them.

That plane hit ommy irizarry and his daughter oceana on the sand.

The 36 year old army veteran died on scene. Nine year old oceana passed away late last night.

Friends and family are still reeling from the shock.

Take sot

Tim Wellman

Friend

6 seconds

He was happy and outgoing.

A great guy to be around.

Kokomoor says he is now helping with the investigation into what brought his plane down.

While two families cope with an unthinkable loss.

ROBERT VAN WINKLE FORECAST OPEN-CLIP


Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

We'll be dodging downpours through this Tuesday evening as spotty rain continues to roam in from the Gulf of Mexico. Some of the rain may be quite heavy, and a few of these downpours could also produce lightning along with gusty winds.

We'll keep rain chances in play through the overnight into Wednesday morning as our winds continue to come in from the Gulf, which is a weather pattern that favors morning showers.

Aside from seeing scattered rain through the next couple of days, expect a partly sunny sky with temperatures topping out in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Some isolated rain will be possible again Thursday morning, and then we transition into seeing more of an afternoon storm pattern by Friday and into the upcoming weekend.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We're tracking a tropical wave in the central Atlantic that's been becoming better organized over the last couple of days.

It's a good possibility that this feature will develop into a tropical depression or perhaps even a tropical storm over the next couple days.

The track through the end of the week will be west and northwest, taking this feature toward the Windward Islands by the weekend.

Most forecast models suggest this storm eventually curve to the north by next week, which would keep the storm away from the U.S. mainland. Return to index of stories...


THE PURGE IN COLLIER COUNTY-2 SH


NAKED PICTURES OF TEENS ARE POPPING UP ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

IT'S A NEW AND DISTURBING TREND CALLED "PURGE" PAGES, NAMED AFTER A MOVIE ABOUT ANARCHY.

NBC2'S CLIFTON FRENCH DISCOVERED THE COLLIER COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE IS WORKING SIX DIFFERENT CASES WHERE NUDE PICTURES OF TEENAGE GIRLS ARE NOW ON INTERNET. Return to index of stories...


THE PURGE IN COLLIER COUNTY-BNR-PKG


IT'S A FICTIONAL MOVIE THAT TOOK OFF AT THE BOX OFFICE --

THE PREMISE -- ANY CRIME CAN BE COMMITTED ON ONE DAY, FREE OF PUNISHMENT --

NOW THAT IDEA HAS SPREAD TO THE INTERNET -- WHERE NUDE PICTURES OF MOSTLY UNDERAGE GIRLS ARE POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA LIKE INSTAGRAM, FACEBOOK AND TWITTER.

TYPICALLY OF A HIGH SCHOOL GIRL, BY ONE OF HER CLASSMATES.

"It's kind of sad thinking that people would actually do something like that."

ABBEY McCOLLUM IS GOING TO BE A SOPHOMORE AT GULF COAST HIGH SCHOOL -- WHERE THE COLLIER COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE SAYS AT LEAST 3 GIRLS HAVE BEEN VICTIMS --

ABBEY DOESN'T KNOW THEM -- BUT SAYS, IF IT HAPPENED TO HER, SHE WOULD BE DEVASTATED.

"You would just be sitting at home and you would be crying in your bed the whole time."

"We do not believe these young people understand that what they're doing is distributing child pornography, unfortunately, that's what it is."

SGT WADE WILLIAMS WITH THE COLLIER COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE SAYS THEY'RE INVESTIGATING 6 CASES RIGHT NOW --

HE SAYS SOME OF THE PHOTOS WERE SENT FROM THE VICTIMS TO THEIR FORMER BOYFRIENDS -- ONE GIRL EVEN HAD THE PHOTOS STOLEN FROM HER PHONE.

"I think what this is is a severe form of cyber bullying and it has severe consequences for the victims of these cases."

THE POINT? TO EMBARRASS A HIGH SCHOOL GIRL AND RUIN HER REPUTATION.

AND THE NAMES OF THESE PAGES SHOW JUST HOW DEGRADING THEY ARE -- SUCH AS IMMOKALEE_HOES AND HOES_AT_GCHS

THE MESSAGE TO PARENTS -- KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR KIDS.

"They need to pay attention to their kids passwords, what sites they're on, put parental controls on."

SOMETHING TEENS LIKE ABBEY SAYS HER MOTHER ALREADY DOES --

"That's what parents are supposed to do, right?" Return to index of stories...


THE PURGE IN COLLIER COUNTY-TC MON
