  • Rescuers sift through the debris following a crash upon takeoff of a Piper PA-23 Apache six-seater twin-engine light aircraft Saturday

Rescuers recover bodies amid the debris following tyhe crash of a Piper PA-23 Apache plane in a residential area of Plaridel township in Bulacan province north of Manila on Saturday.

The crash killed all five people on board and fire more people on the ground in Plaridel, according to the latest police report. At least five people reportedly died in a house the plane crashed into.

"All plane occupants died in the aircraft accident with collateral damage to a house with five occupants who also perished", Mr Apolonio said.

TEN people were killed today when a small aircraft slammed into a home in the Philippines wiping out a family eating their lunch.




Mr Apolonio said the aircraft, which was operated by Lite Air Express, was bound for Laoag City, Ilocos Norte.

CAAP has yet to give any official confirmation on the passengers and plane crewmembers as of posting.

Other confirmed fatalities are Louisa dela Rosa, aged 80; Risa dela Rosa and her three children - 17-year-old John dela Rosa, 11-year-old Timothy dela Rosa and seven-year-old Trisa dela Rosa.

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines has initiated an investigation into the matter.
