At least three people died this Saturday when the plane they were driving against a residential building in northwestern Germany crashed, according to a German police spokesman.
The identity of the three deaths is still unknown and it is also unknown whether the pilot of the plane is one of the deceased. There was room for two people on the plane. The plane crashed into the roof of a five-story building in the Lower Rhine city of Wesel. The collision caused a fire on the roof of the building that had already been deleted.
During an inspection of the building, police officials said that firefighters found a little boy who is believed to be one of the building’s residents with minor injuries. Rescuers found a parachute near the crash site and the police believe it is the plane’s emergency parachute.
According to the police, the plane could have taken off from Marl airfield. The airfield is located east of the city where the plane crashed in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
