A small plane took off this afternoon from JFK to Cuyahoga County Airport in Richmond Heights.

It was carrying two frum men from the east coast, and somewhere along the way the engines lost power. Shortly thereafter, they lost radar and radio contact with the FAA.

A text message reportedly from one of the occupants was frantic: “say tehillim… we lost engines… call and have community say Tehillim.”

As the search and rescue operation is ongoing, the community is asked to daven for Boruch ben Sara, Binyomin Riyal ben Bracha.
