A firefighter-paramedic from the West Peculiar Fire Department in Cass County (Mo.) was one of two persons killed in a Saturday afternoon plane crash in southern Missouri.

Jennifer Collins, 32, also was on the staff of Freefall Express Skydiving based at the Mount Vernon, Mo., Airport where the crash occurred late Saturday afternoon.

According to the company's website, Collins was a senior rigger and the veteran of more than 200 skydives.
