Jenni Rivera Plane Crashes in Mexico; Official Says “No Survivors,” 7 Dead
Jenni Rivera’s plane crashed in Mexico on Sunday morning, setting off an hours-long search for the remains.
Mexican officials now say they’ve found the wreckage of what they believe was the 43-year-old singer’s plane, and there were “no survivors.”
Rivera, who performed in Monterrey on Saturday night (footage below), took off from the northern Mexican city with two pilots and four other passengers at 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning, but traffic controllers lost contact with the jet about 10 minutes later.
The flight was bound for Toluca, outside of Mexico City, but was found near the town of Iturbide in Sierra Madre.
