Gerardo Nales fell out of a private plane three days ago and, after an intensive search, it is believed that authorities have found the body.
Gerardo Nales was one of two passengers on board a private plane flown by a sole pilot that took off from Tamiami Executive Airport in Southwest Miami-Dade County. This plane was flying at about 2,000 feet when the pilot of the Piper PA 46 called for help saying “mayday.”
The recording of the pilot was peculiar as he was completely calm when notifying the air traffic controller. The pilot’s name has not yet been released nor has the identity of the other passenger since this is an on-going investigation.
Gerardo Nales is a 42-year-old Miami native who resided in Key Biscayne. Cameras were lined up on the sidewalk near his Key Biscayne apartment complex this past Friday afternoon. It is unclear where the plane was headed at the time, but it was said to be about eight miles from the Tamiami airport.
Authorities still do not know exactly what happened on the plane, but investigators have no evidence of foul play.
This incident is still under investigation as investigators are unsure if Nales jumped out of the plane or was pushed. More information will become available shortly
