Captain / Total hours on type:
En route from South Bimini to Tampico, Mexico, the airplane suffered a double engine failure. The pilot ditched the aircraft off New Orleans. Seriously injured, he was rescued but apparently died a week later.
As the airplane was not recovered, it was not possible to establish the cause of the accident. Illegal flight suspected.
