MADRID, Dec. 2 (EUROPE PRESS) –
At least three people died on Sunday night after crashing a plane while trying to land at the San Antonio International Airport, located in the US state of Texas (south).
The head of the San Antonio Fire Department, Charles Hood, said that the device has crashed in a commercial district just over a kilometer from the airport, as reported by the NBC television network.
The plane had taken off from Sugar Land, southwest of Houston, and was headed to Boerne when he suffered a problem with one of the engines and turned to the San Antonio airport to try to land.
The event took place one day after the death of at least nine people, including two children, when a plane crashed over the state of South Dakota. Three people survived the accident.
Among the first causes that are considered are the bad weather, given the strong winds and snowfall that fell in the state during Saturday afternoon, according to the United States National Meteorological Service.
