Two suburban teenagers remain in a Florida hospital following a weekend plane crash that killed one of their fathers.

Calls made to 911 were released on Tuesday.

CALLER: A plane landed on McMullen Booth. Oh my God!

911 OPERATOR: 911, Is this a police, fire or medical emergency?

CALLER: All of them! Do you know there's a plane down on McMullen Booth?

Authorities say the PA-28 airplane that left Grayslake Friday night was bound for Clearwater, Florida. The plane crashed early Saturday onto a road just north of the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport.

The girls - Katherine Bronken and Keyana Linbo, both 15 - were taken to a hospital in Tampa with serious injuries. Officials say pilot Jeffrey Bronken, 53, of Round Lake, died at the scene.

The Federal Aviation Administration says it received a radio call from the plane indicating possible fuel problems.
