The founder of a California steel company is believed to be among the three people killed when a small plane crashed into a shallow lagoon off San Francisco Bay today. The others are believed to be Robert Borrmann's girlfriend and the pilot.
An employee of R.E. Borrmann's Steel Co. says the twin-engine
Beechcraft Queen Air was owned by company founder 92-year-old
Employee Charlene Marshall says Borrmann, his girlfriend and the
pilot are believed to have been in the plane that crashed a mile
after taking off from San Carlos airport.
Redwood City Fire Battalion Chief Dave Pucci says divers
recovered the body of a 40-year-old woman outside the plane.
Divers were hindered in the rescue because of contamination
in the lagoon from a 48,000-gallon sewage spill last week.
