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.

12-year-old Veda Sheperd walked away from the crash, they said. 


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. 


It’s unclear what the exact condition of the other child on board is, although it’s confirmed they survived. 

Sgt. Holt said one of the children was treated and released from a hospital Saturday.
