A more detailed review, however, suggests that it wasn't eight cabinet members, but rather eight people including two cabinet members, and some other senior members of government.
I did further research and discovered that it was 8 people that died, including 2 US cabinet members -- the Secretaries of State and the Navy.

I fixed the Wikipedia entry for the day, which is where my first, erroneous, post was sourced from.
