The City of Cape Town’s Emergency Services rushed to an open field in Lower Crossroads on Tuesday evening, 28 June, after an aircraft went down.
LIGHT AIRCRAFT CRASH IN CAPE TOWN
City of Cape MayCo Member for Safety and Security, Councillor JP Smith, said a light aircraft went down in the Luzuko area of Lower Crossroads shortly before 18:00 on Tuesday.
According to reports, both occupants of the aircraft were injured in the crash. “…all emergency services are en route. Further updates will follow,” said Smith.
Photographs and videos – shared by the City – of the scene show dozens of first responders on the scene around the aircraft while an even greater number of people watch from a distance.
An aerial shot of the scene, presumably taken shortly after the crash and before the authorities had cordoned off the crash site, shows members of the public crowded around the aircraft.
This is a developing story.
