WEST JORDAN, Utah — The woman, Mary Quintana, 72, who was home when a small plane crashed into her house in West Jordan has died from her injuries, according to police. 

West Jordan Police Department confirms three are dead after a plane crash Saturday afternoon. 

The names of the victims and their conditions were released by the West Jordan Police Department on Sunday via Twitter.

The pilot was a 43-year-old named Lee Wyckoff who died in the crash as did nine-month-old Coral Wyckoff and 36-year-old Milda Shibonis.

Rebecca Wyckoff, 36,  is reported being in critical condition. 

They said in the tweet that two-year-old Cody Mitchell received critical burns on his arms and legs.

Sgt. J.C. Holt reported out of the six passengers on the plane, two adults and one child — a 9-month-old infant — died. The other three victims survived, with one adult female in critical condition and one 2-year-old male in stable condition.
