One of the six people killed when a plane crashed into a home in Montgomery County, Md. Monday was a former Brick resident.
Marie Gemmell, 36, died along with her two sons, 3-year-old Cole and 1-month-old Devon, when the Embraer EMB-500/Phenom 100 twin-engine jet sputtered and crashed into her home. Gemmel was a 1997 graduate of Brick Memorial High School and later attended Rowan University. She was a stay-at-home mother; her husband and daughter were not in the home at the time of the crash authorities said.
A GoFundMe fundraising effort to pay for funeral expenses had been established by Monday night. Donations are needed since the wife-and-mother’s tragic death was compounded by the two remaining members of the family having lost their home due to the damage sustained in the crash, organizers said.
Fox News Channel reported Monday that at least three people on board the plane were killed as well. The news network reported Dr. Michael Rosenberg, founder and CEO of the clinical research organization Health Decisions was on board the plane.
