Poland: Plane Crash At Chrcynno Hangar Kills Five


share close

A small plane has crashed into a hangar at an airfield near the Polish capital Warsaw, killing five people including its pilot, officials say.

Eight people were also injured in the crash, police say. Thirteen people had reportedly been sheltering from bad weather in the hangar.

The fire brigade said poor weather was a “probable cause” of the crash.

Four helicopters and 10 ambulances were dispatched to the scene of the incident in the village of Chrcynno.

The village is 47km (29 miles) from the capital Warsaw. Polish media identified the plane that crashed as a Cessna 208.
The local fire department confirmed the incident had happened at an airfield in Chrcynno and posted a photo on Facebook showing the tail of the plane sticking out of a hangar.

Police were alerted shortly after 17:30 GMT, AFP news agency reports. They were to launch an investigation.

Rescuers say three people were on board the plane when it collided with the corrugated iron hangar, AFP adds.
