Brother: Hawaii official didn't have heart problem

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The brother of the Hawaii health director who died after a plane's crash-landing off the Hawaiian island of Molokai says she didn't have any known heart problems.

Maui police announced Monday that Loretta Fuddy died of cardiac arrhythmia, which was the result of stress from the Dec. 11 crash into the water after the single-engine plane lost power. The pilot and seven other passengers survived without major injuries.

The pilot and a passenger who swam to shore have said Fuddy appeared fine while bobbing in the water after everyone exited the plane and waited for help to arrive.

Fuddy's brother, Lewis Fuddy, says she was healthy and didn't have any known heart problems.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash. Its preliminary report says the plane floated for about 25 minutes before sinking.
