THOMSON, Ga. (AP) -- A coroner has confirmed the identity of a fourth person who died when a business jet collided with a 60-foot utility pole and caught fire after aborting its landing at an east Georgia airport.
The plane was carrying a surgeon and members of his clinic staff when it went down Wednesday night at the Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport after a flight from Nashville.
McDuffie County Coroner Foster Wiley said early Friday the fourth victim was Tiffany Porter.Dr. Stephen Davis, a surgeon who works for an affiliated clinic, has said Porter and the fifth person killed were ultrasound technicians.
Earlier, he identified the other three who died as Dr. Steven Roth, a vascular surgeon, nurse anesthetist Lisa Volpitto and secretary Kim Davidson.
Wiley said dental records would be used in an attempt to positively identify the fifth person.
