Passenger falls out of airplane at 2,000 feet into the ocean

Two days ago this was noticed by the Independent journal. An US Pilot said that a passenger supposedly fell of an airplane while flying at 2,000 feet above the ocean near Miami. A LIVEATC recording registered an unknown pilot saying "mayday, mayday, mayday. I have a door ajar and a passenger that fell down. I'm six miles from Tamiami."

The pilot was questioned by the controller to confirm the loss of one passenger and the pilot confirmed saying: "That's correct sir. He opened the back door and he just fell out of the plane."

US Coast Guard and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue have been searching the area with no results to confirm that the pilot's call was legitimate. The number of passengers on board and the departing airfield were not yet confirmed at the time of the broadcast of the Independent and the veracity of the story is yet to be confirmed.
