Tragic news from South Dakota, the United States. The local media reported a deadly plane crash that killed nine people. The Swiss-made single-engine Pilatus PC-12 was cleared last Saturday to fly from Chamberlain Municipal Airport to Idaho Falls, Idaho. It took off but crashed during a snowstorm. Kris and Jim Hansen, founders of the wellnes company Kyäni Inc, were among these killed. Three people survived.
Also killed in the crash were Jim Hasen Sr., Jim Hansen Jr.’s son, Jake Hansen, and Jake’s son, Houston. Kirk Hansen’s sons, Stockton and Logan, and his sons-in-law, Kyle Naylor and Tyson Dennert. It is not yet known whether the accident was caused by stormy weather or other factors. The investigation to determine this is to be carried out and closed within a year or two.
„We are deeply sad to announce that yesterday, we lost our precious founders Jim and Kirk in a tragic plane crash in Chamberlain, South Dakota”. These are the words of Kyäni president Travis Garza from the official statement sent to business partners last Sunday. “James Hansen, Jim and Kirk’s father, unfortunately, died in the same accident.”
