Two-time Cy Young Award victor Roy Halladay died Tuesday in a tragic plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico.

The National Transportation Safety Board says witnesses saw Roy Halladay flying his plane in low altitude prior to the crash that claimed the life of the former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher.

The specific aircraft Halladay was flying was the first of 100 "Founders Edition" ICON A5's built for 2018.

In May, the chief designer of the plane and the company's director of engineering died in one of them, crashing during a flight at Lake Berryessa, California.

Noreen Price, the accident investigator for the NTSB, says Halladay's plane was found inverted in four feet of water.

"I didn't grow up the way Roy did", she said, via PEOPLE. "They think you should not have a low-time pilot flying low over water".

Paradise Papers: Queen's private estate invests in offshore tax havens
One of the Duchy's offshore investments has generated some controversy. It said that all its investments were legitimate.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office said the ICON A5 light sport aircraft registered to Halladay crashed into the Gulf of Mexico about 10 miles west of St. Petersburg, FL, at about 1 p.m. ET.

Investigators have recovered two data recorders from the plane.

"We have gotten to know Roy and his family in recent months, and he was a great advocate and friend of ours", the statement said.

As heartfelt goodbyes and joyous remeberances continue to stream in, many are still trying to make sense of the sudden, seemingly out of nowhere death of a Phillies and Blue Jays legend.

Halladay pitched a flawless game and a no-hitter in his first postseason start in the same year after coming to the Phillies in 2010.

Halladay left behind his wife, Brandy, and two sons, Ryan and Braden.
