10 foreign passengers killed in Costa Rican plane crash

Dawn and Matthew Wolfe, who have been vacationing in Costa Rica for a month, said they and their three children were sitting in a restaurant near Punta Islita Airport when the plane took off. "We are in contact with Costa Rican aviation authorities and will continue to monitor the situation", the spokesperson said in a statement to CBS News.

A plane crashed in Costa Rica on Sunday killing at least 12 people, a lot of them foreign tourists, the country's security ministry said. The Public Safety Ministry posted photographs and video of the crash site showing burning wreckage of the plane in Guanacaste, northwest Costa Rica.

It said the aircraft belonged to Nature Air and had taken off nearby.

The cause of the crash was not yet known, the country's security ministry said.
