plane landingA small jet plane made an emergency landing on a packed beach near Lisbon killing a man and an 8-year-old girl who were sunbathing.


Witnesses told the media that the plane made little noise as it skimmed low over hundreds of people on Sao Joao da Caparica’s sands, about 20 kilometres (12 miles) south of Lisbon. As the entire incident took place very fast, the tourists did not get any chance to run. Some sunbathers ran into the sea to avoid the plane, witnesses said.


After the plane crash landed, the beachgoers surrounded the plane and confronted its two occupants. With the help of the police intervention, the mob was calmed who wanted to attack the pilot as ‘killer’.


The National Maritime Authority said the man and girl, who were not related, died on the beach. It did not give the man’s age, but local media reported he was 50. No one else was reportedly harmed.



According to the pictures, the plane appeared to have a partly broken left wing, which hung lower than the right wing
