Ten dead after plane crash in the Philippines

BULACAN. Rescuers sift through the debris following a crash upon takeoff of a Piper PA-23 Apache six-seater twin-engine light aircraft Saturday

The plane, which was on its way to the northern city of Laoag, was carrying four passengers and the pilot, who were all killed in the crash, Aviation Authority spokesman, Eric Apolonio, said.

Apolonio said that six passengers were on board the aircraft when the incident happened.

All five Filipinos on board the six-seater plane were killed, and the crash killed five people on the ground, said Supt Julio Lizardo, the Plaridel police chief.

A small plane crashed into a house north of the Philippine capital on Saturday (Mar 17), killing 10 people, officials and media said.

The crash ignited a fire in a house that was hit by the aircraft, he said, and the other bodies were not found until the blaze was extinguished.

Rescuers are checking if there were other casualties in the burning house.

TRAGEDY AT NOON Police Scene of the Crime Operatives take out the remains of the fatalities of the plane crash from a residential area in Barangay Lumang Bayan, Plaridel, Bulacan on Saturday morning.

Witnesses said the plane struck a tree and an electricity pole before slamming into the house. "All seven victims died on the spot".

All aircrafts operated by Lite Air Express have been grounded pending investigation.

"CAAP's accident investigators and a team from Flight Safety and Inspectorate Service (FSIS) was immediately dispatched to the crash site", CAAP said.
