A plane crashed into a river in central France on Saturday killing two people and injuring four others, including one child, authorities said.
Two people died and two others were injured in the accident, a spokesman for the local emergency services said.
The plane crashed in the Seine river near the Château-de-Vincennes district in the western province of Montpellier, a police spokesman said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
A witness told France Info radio that a woman and her child were rescued by rescue workers after they saw the wreckage of the jet.
“I saw a huge fireball coming from the plane and the mother was screaming, ‘I can’t breathe’,” he said.
“The plane had a white flag and the children were in a cage, holding their parents.”
French media reported that a rescue worker told France 2 television that there were two children and a woman aboard the aircraft.
The witness said the plane crashed near the St. Jean-sur-Richelieu Catholic Church in the nearby village of St-Jacques-de‐Luz-Bois, near the city of Bordeaux.
It was not immediately clear what caused the crash.
France 2 television reported that the wreckage had been pulled away from the river by emergency workers.
