Nine killed in Bahamas jet crash, including prominent Bahamian minister Myles Munroe


Internationally known motivational speaker Myles Munroe and his family are feared dead, as it is being reported that his private plane crashed trying to land at the Grand Bahamas International airport Sunday night in the Bahamas.

Nine passengers were aboard the Learjet when it crashed around 5 p.m. local time after departing Lynden Pindling International airport in the Bahamas capital of Nassau. The cause of the crash has not yet been determined, though there had been heavy rain across the region.

Munroe, a 60-year-old Bahamas native, is the published author of more than 100 spiritual and inspirational works and was traveling to lead his Global Leadership Forum. He is also a government and business consultant to Fortune 500 businesses, according to a biography on the Ministries website.

The Global Leadership Forum will continue as scheduled, according to a statement released by Munroe’s Facebook page. “This is what Dr. Munroe would have wanted. Please keep this family and the ministry in prayers,” a spokesperson wrote.

The names of the victims and the cause of the crash were not immediately known.
