SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- Law enforcement officials in Florida say a 9-year-old girl has died from injuries suffered when she was hit by a plane that crash-landed on the beach where she was walking with her father.
 
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday morning that they were notified by the medical examiner's office that Oceana Irizzary had died. The child's father, 36-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Ommy Irizarry, died Sunday.
 
They were walking along Caspersen Beach in Venice Sunday afternoon when the 1972 Piper Cherokee plane made an emergency landing after reporting problems. Officials say the father and daughter were hit by either the plane or its debris.
 
The family is from Fort Stewart, Georgia. Ommy Irizarry and his wife, Rebecca, were celebrating their ninth wedding anniversary Sunday.
