It is believed that the victims were on the beach when the light aircraft was forced to landTwo people have been killed after a plane made an emergency landing on a Portuguese beach. The victims are believed to be a man, aged 55, and an eight-year-old child who were killed while playing on the sand. The drama happened late this afternoon at Sao Joao beach on Portugal’s Costa de Caparica coastline near Jose Mourinho’s home city of Setubal. Tourists had flocked to the beach and many were sunbathing when the plane was forced to land. Unconfirmed reports suggest that the plane hit the man first, then travelled another 55 metres with a broken wing before hitting the child. Witnesses told how the pilot was insulted by onlookers in the moments after it became clear the little girl and the adult, both thought to be Portuguese and unrelated to each other, had been killed. One, known only as Mafalda, told a Portuguese paper how she was forced to grab her children and flee as the plane came down over the packed beach close to the mouth of the River Tagus on Portugal’s stunning Costa da Caparica. She said:

“Those first moments were very tense. People wanted to attack the pilot and began to shout at him that he was a killer.

We missed it by metres. He then suggests that he saw the aircraft hit the young child in the head. The small aircraft, reportedly a Cessna and carrying two people, appeared to be in difficulty and wobbled as it skimmed low over the sunbathers - scattering them and spreading panic on the beach, witnesses said. Another witness, journalist Enrique Pinto Coelho, who was playing football with his son on the beach, said: “I’ve just seen this plane make an emergency landing.
“It came down and advanced around 655 metres in the wet sand after it landed, taking two people who were lying on the beach with it. “We were unfortunately very near the landing spot and were playing football. It passed over the football pitch and we had to move back to avoid being hit ourselves. “A large group of people surrounded the plane immediately. One of its wings was broken.
”The plane appeared to have a partly broken left wing, which hung lower than the right wing, Portuguese television pictures showed. The dead girl was with her parents, who were unhurt, witnesses told local television channels. The plane that made the emergency landing has been described as a light aircraft. Police chiefs said the two people on board, an instructor and his pupil, had survived and were being questioned. There are unconfirmed reports that pair had been arrested.
The unnamed 56-year-old pilot of the plane was described by a spokesman at his flight school as “very experienced” and someone who had amassed hundreds of hours of flight time. Portuguese TV station SIC reported he had made a Mayday call before signalling he had to land because of engine failure.
