Circumstances:
The twin engine airplane departed Miami-Opa Locka on a charter flight to Chub Cay, carrying one passenger and one pilot. While approaching Berry Islands, the pilot reported engine problems and attempted to ditch the airplane few km offshore. Both occupants were injured and rescued while the airplane sank and was lost. It appears it sank by deep sea.
