(Naval Air Station, Jacksonville, FL, USA – May 9, 2019) Twenty people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries after a Boeing 737-800 charter jet operated by Miami Air International skidded off a runway at Naval Air Station Jacksonville and into the nearby St. John’s River. Only one person, a 3-month old infant, was hospitalized, and that was only as a precaution. None of the injuries was reported as serious.

In the aftermath of the accident, Miami Air International offered each of the passengers $2500 as a “goodwill gesture,” and the CEO of the airline apologized to the survivors. According to Karl Kamrad, accepting the payment would not “affect their rights.”

According to reports, one dog and two cats belonging to a military family died in the incident.
