Hollywood is mourning the loss of one of their beloved actors and his two young daughters.
According to reports, Christian Oliver and his two daughters were in the Caribbean on January 4 when their plane “plummeted into the ocean” just moments after take off. In a statement made by the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force, Oliver and his girls were in a small single-engine aircraft traveling to St. Lucia.
“Moments after taking off, the aircraft experienced difficulties and plummeted into the ocean. Fishermen and divers from Paget Farm went to the scene of the incident in their boats to render assistance. The SVG Coast Guard was informed and quickly traveled to Paget Farm, Bequia, to lead in the rescue efforts.”
The Baby-Sitters Club star, whose birth name is Christian Klepser, and his daughters, 10-year-old Madita and 12-year-old Annik, were later identified as the passengers on the plane. The pilot was also identified as Robert Sachs, who also owned the plane.
It’s unclear how the actor and Sachs knew each other. During recovery efforts, all four of the bodies were recovered.
Christian’s last Instagram post came on New Year’s Day. “Let love rule! Wishing all of you the best for 2024! Greetings from somewhere in paradise! To community and love …2024 [here] we come!”
