German-born Hollywood actor Christian Oliver, renowned for his roles alongside George Clooney in “The Good German” and in the 2008 action-comedy “Speed Racer,” tragically lost his life, along with his two young daughters, in a devastating incident. The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force reported that the small plane they were aboard plummeted into the Caribbean Sea shortly after takeoff. The incident occurred while the privately owned, one-engine aircraft was en route from Bequia, a small island in the Grenadines, to St Lucia on Thursday afternoon.
Local authorities, including fishermen, divers, and the coast guard, swiftly responded to the scene, where the bodies of Christian Oliver, 51, his daughters Madita, 10, and Annik, 12, as well as pilot Robert Sachs, were recovered. The family, seemingly on vacation, had shared moments from their tropical getaway on social media, with Oliver posting a picture of a serene beach with the caption: “Greetings from somewhere in paradise! To community and love… 2024 [here] we come!”
