A private jet carrying nine people — including six American citizens — crashed in the Dominican Republic shortly after takeoff, killing everyone on board.

A Gulfstream GIVSP plane leaving El Higüero airport was en route to Miami before the pilot declared an emergency and decided to divert, seeking to land at Las Americas International Airport in the Dominican Republic’s capital, Santo Domingo, according to Helidosa Aviation Group, the company operating the jet.
