8 killed in Finland parachutist plane accident

Published: 04.20.14, 22:49 / Israel News

Finnish officials say eight people died when a small plane carrying parachutists crashed to the ground and caught fire.

 

Det. Supt. Petri Kangas said three people survived the accident Sunday after they parachuted from the aircraft above Jamijarvi airfield, about 70 kilometers (45 miles) east of the southwestern town of Pori.

 

Kangas said investigators didn't know the cause of the accident but that "apparently some parts fell off the plane before it crashed." (AP)
