Nine killed in Philippine air-ambulance crash

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said it was investigating why the Beechcraft King Air plane carrying the couple and seven Filipinos, including a medical team, crashed on Sunday in Pansol village in Laguna province as it approached its destination, Manila.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed to 1 NEWS that, "two New Zealanders sadly died in the plane crash in the Philippines".

Police stated two folks at the floor had been injured within the crash and rushed to health facility, however have no longer reported any fatalities from those that had been within the lodge space when the airplane went down.

As of 8:16 p.m. Sunday, Rodriguez said the nine bodies that were charred beyond recognition had been retrieved from the ill-fated plane's wreckage.


They have been in the Philippines for about six months visiting family.

Boquia said her two youngest children, who she had adopted from relatives, were waiting at the hospital for their parents' arrival when the plane crashed.

A similar incident happened in Nasugbu, Batangas on Saturday when at about 1 p.m. a multi-engine plane travelling back to Sangley Point in Cavite City crashed along the shoreline of Papaya village.

Ms Carr was also very close to a group of Catholics and other Christian friends who did good work in the community, she said.


But the plane disappeared from the radar track above Laguna, 37 miles south of Manila.

The CAAP updated that it sent air crash investigation and inquiry board investigators to the crash site. A medevac aircraft with three people aboard went missing after it took off from Anchorage, Alaska, on Tuesday.

Small planes hop between the Philippines numerous islands and the incident involving crashes of light aircraft is quite common.

"Nakakanerbiyos pala 'pag actual na nakita mo tapos hindi mo alam kung sa bahay mo babagsak ang mga debris (we are so nervous upon seeing the actual incident and you don't even know which house the plane's debris would fall)", she said.
