Gervonta DavisA private plane scheduled to fly world champion boxer Gervonta Davis to Las Vegas has been canceled.
Saturday afternoon, before 2:00 p.m. ET, from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport in Florida.
So According to Mike Jachles, the city of Fort Lauderdale’s public relations officer, the aircraft, which was carrying between four and ten passengers, had nose gear failure as it neared the runway, leading the pilots to lose control of the plane’s path.
The nose gear crumbled almost instantly. The Fort Worth Fire-Rescue Department came to assess the situation.
“I’m OK,” Davis said on Instagram shortly after the mishap, before adding that he was sweating and shaking as a consequence.
“I think it’s over for everyone who wants to fly private,” Davis said on Instagram shortly after the tragedy. “I’m either driving or riding the train,” says the narrator.
In a social media video, several of Davis’ fellow passengers said the pilots told them they didn’t have control of the plane.
“I walk with angels,” Davis wrote later Saturday in his stories.
No one onboard the plane was medically evacuate from the scene, according to Stephen Gollan, the Battalion Chief for Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue.
Paramedics treat one unnamed patient on-site after he refuse to be take to the hospital.
The aircraft had not yet been evacuated from the accident scene, despite the fact that it had been defueled, and one runway at the airport remained closed as of 7 p.m.
As is normal practice in any mishap, the Federal Aviation Administration sent a field investigator to the site. According to Jachles, the National Transportation Safety Board is unlikely to launch an investigation.
An email sent to the aircraft’s listed management agent got no response from ESPN.
