16 Dead in Mexico Plane Crash
Killed Mexican Interior Minister Juan Camilo Mourino.

MEXICO CITY -- An 85-year-old man who was among the pedestrians hurt when the plane carring Mexican Interior Minister Juan Camilo Mouriņo crashed on a Mexico City street has died of his injuries, authorities said, raising to 16 the death toll from the Nov. 4 accident.

The federal Health Secretariat announced that Victor Altamirano Lopez died suddenly at home Thursday, after being discharged from a public hospital in the capital on Nov. 28 because of the improvement in his condition.

Another four patients injured in the accident remain hospitalized and are in various stages of recovery, the secretariat said.

On Nov. 4 the executive jet carrying Mouriņo and eight others crashed onto a busy street in Mexico City, killing all nine people aboard.

Six pedestrians were also killed in the crash, while another 40 were injured.

According to the first official reports, the accident was due to the incompetence of the pilot, who flew too close to a larger aircraft in front of him and into the "vortex of turbulence in its wake," sending his own plane out of control and crashing to earth.
