Filipino among those killed in Hawaii plane crash incident.

By Richa Noriega

A 23-year-old Filipino was among 11 persons killed on June 21 when a skydiving plane crashed in Hawaii.

Jordan Tehero was the youngest among the victims who boarded the twin-engine plane that crashed after it took off from Dilingham Airfield in Oahu, the Honolulu Medical Examiner's office said.

Tehero, from the Hawaii Island of Kauai, was active in church and also served in the military reserve.

The twin-engine plane Beechcraft BE65 crashed under unknown circumstances while taking off, the Federation Aviation Administration said.

While the Honolulu Medical Examiner's office has already been able to identify nine victims, two others - including the pilot - have yet to be identified.

According to the authorities, all 11 people aboard the plane were killed after the plane crashed and burned last June 21.
