Folks, I've been covering the death of hedge fund chief Michael Klein in a plane crash this week in Panama. He died along with his 13-year-old daughter, Talia, and the 23-year-old Panamanian pilot, Edwin Lasso.
Talia's teenage friend, Francesca Lewis, miraculously survived and is now being treated in a hospital after a grueling rescue mission. Her parents have joined her in Panama.
It's another example of how life is fleeting. Klein was a whip-smart kid who skipped high school and went directly to college at UC Santa Barbara at the age of 14. He graduated at 17 and would later attend law school and get his MBA.
