NTSB: Plane gave several warnings before crash into lake


The National Transportation Safety Board has issued a report saying the plane that crashed into Lake Erie off Cleveland killing all six people onboard issued multiple warnings about the aircraft’s altitude.

The plane piloted by Columbus beverage executive John Fleming crashed in December 2016 shortly after takeoff from Burke Lakefront Airport near downtown Cleveland.

Fleming’s wife, Suzanne, two teenage sons and two family friends were also on the plane during a planned return flight to Columbus after a Cleveland Cavaliers game.

The NTSB report issued Wednesday said the plane’s enhanced ground proximity warning system gave numerous alerts to pull up followed by a warning that the plane was traveling too fast.

Suzanne and John Fleming were natives of Boardman.

Report: Industrial chemicals more toxic than thought


A government report shows that a family of industrial chemicals turning up in public water supplies around the country is even more toxic than previously thought, threatening human health at concentrations seven to 10 times lower than previously realized.

The chemicals are called perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl. They were used in goods such as fire-suppressing foam, nonstick pans and fast-food wrappers.
