Music producer Flow La Movie killed when jet bound for Florida crashes in Dominican Republic

Nine passengers, including a Puerto Rican music producer and his family, died when a private jet crashed in the Dominican Republic.

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic – A music producer was among nine people killed on impact when a private jet bound for Florida crashed in the Dominican Republic on Wednesday.

Puerto Rican music producer José Ángel Hernández, better known as Flow La Movie, was among the victims, as were his 31-year-old wife and 4-year-old son.

Hernández, 38, had worked with a number of reggaeton artists. He produced Urban Latin songs such as “Te Boté” by Bad Bunny and Ozuna, and “La Jeepeta” by Nio Garcia, Brray and Juanka.

The Gulfstream had just taken off from La Isabela International Airport in Santo Domingo when it attempted to make an emergency landing about 15 minutes later at Las Americas Airport, authorities said.

Seven passengers and two crew members were killed in the crash, the Helidosa Aviation Group said.

Helidosa said the plane was headed to Miami, though other reports say it was bound for Orlando.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
