San Antonio plane crash: 3 dead after emergency landing goes wrong – CNN

(CNN)An emergency landing went horribly wrong Sunday night as a plane crashed in San Antonio, leaving three dead, according to fire officials.

The small, single-engine plane was leaving Sugar Land and headed to Boerne, Texas, when it developed engine trouble, San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood told CNN affiliate KSAT-TV.
The pilot wanted to make an emergency landing at San Antonio International Airport, Hood said, but ended up crashing into the street.

Fire Chief Charles Hood said the twin-engine plane crashed in a commercial and industrial area killing all three people on board. Hood says the plane had taken off in Sugar Land and was on its way to Boerne when they developed engine problems. The pilot notified the San Antonio International Airport that they were going to divert to the airport to make an emergency landing, but they weren’t able to make it to the airport before crashing.

When firefighters arrived on the scene they found the wreckage beside a street. No one on the ground was hurt. Firefighters have blocked off a wide area around the 600 block of Rhapsody recovering any debris that might have fallen off the plane during the approach and crash. Hood says “as tragic as it is, it could have been much worse” had the plane come down on busy Highway 281 nearby or into a business or apartment complex.

9 killed in South Dakota plane crash, including 2 children

Three others on board are being treated for critical injuries.

“The men and women of law enforcement, first responders and medical professionals should be commended in their heroic actions to rescue the victims in the extreme weather conditions,” according to a statement from Brule County States Attorney Theresa Maule Rossow, which was posted to the Brule County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page Saturday evening.

The Pilatus PC-12 had taken off at the Chamberlain Municipal Airport and was heading to Idaho Falls, Idaho, according to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader.

Two children are among those who died and there were 12 people on board the plane, KSFY-TV reported.

BRULE COUNTY, S.D. (KSFY) – UPDATE 9:45 p.m. – KIFI reports members of an Idaho Falls family were killed Saturday afternoon in a South Dakota plane crash near Chamberlain.

The crash took nine lives, including prominent businessmen Jim and Kirk Hansen, the pilot, 2 young children, and four other males.

Three others survived the crash and are being treated at a local hospital.

The Hansen’s own K & J Super Stores, oil company Conrad and Bischoff and founders of the health and wellness company Kyani.

The plane crashed shortly after takeoff from the Chamberlain Municipal Airport around 12:30 p.m. in a nearby farm field.

Family friends told KIFI the men were on a traditional Thanksgiving hunting trip in South Dakota and were returning home.

Conditions poor at time of crash

Though the cause of the crash hasn’t been released, Chamberlain and central south-central South Dakota were under a winter storm warning at the time.

The NWS said visibility was a half a mile with light winds reported at the airport at 12:30 p.m. There have been no snowfall totals reported for Chamberlain, but Gregory, which is south of Chamberlain, reported eight inches of snow as of 2 p.m., the NWS said.
