Retired baseball superstar Roy Halladay died in a fatal plane crash Tuesday in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Dept. in Florida is holding a news conference to reveal details of the crash. They confirm Roy was the only person aboard the ICON A5 light-sport aircraft when it went down 10 miles west of St. Petersburg.
The Sheriff’s Dept. says Roy did not make a mayday call before he went down, and they’ve already recovered his body.
40-year-old Halladay proudly purchased his ICON A5 just last month. He posted a video when he got the plane, in which his wife expressed concern about him flying the aircraft.
