The Italian-made plane took off from an airport in Mexico, headed to a resort on the coast. The charter for the plane named Schaller as a passenger. The other passengers’ identities, all said to be German nationals, were also unconfirmed by authorities.
In a German newspaper, McFit spokeswoman Jeanine Minaty said Schaller, his children, his partner, and another man were onboard, along with the pilot, but didn’t have any further information to share. RSG Group, Schaller’s company, released a statement stating they were “shocked, stunned, and full of grief about” the accident. They stated their thoughts are with the families impacted by the tragedy.
