A small private plane crashed into a building in Italy, which killed all those aboard. According to Sunday reports, the crash happened outside Milan after the plane slammed into a vacant office building.
Six passengers and two crew members were on the planes. Authorities said the passengers, which included a small boy, were believed to be French.
Smoke from the crash could be seen for miles around.
“I heard the sound of a plane above me as if the plane was shutting down its engine,” one witness explained. “Then I heard a very loud explosion, the windows of our house started to shake so I opened the window and saw a huge cloud of smoke rising into the sky.”
Several vehicles parked along the street also caught fire. No other injuries were reported as the building was reportedly under renovation.
