File - In this undated image from video provided by the Hawaii Department of Health shows Hawaii Health Department Director Loretta Fuddy. Fudday was killed after a small plane with nine people aboard crashed into the water off the Hawaiian island of Molokai Wednesday Dec. 11, 2013 according to Tom Matsuda, the interim executive director of Hawaii's health insurance exchange. Fuddy was 65. Police say the cause of death for the Hawaii health director who died after a plane’s crash-landing off the Hawaiian island of Molokai was cardiac arrhythmia. Maui police announced Monday Jan. 13, 2014, that Loretta Fuddy’s condition was the result of stress from the Dec. 11 crash into the water after the single-engine plane lost power.
