Six dead in small plane crash in Switzerland

Six people, including the pilot, died when a small tourist plane crashed in a field in western Switzerland, regional police said Sunday.

The plane came down Saturday near the village of Tatroz, in the Swiss canton of Fribourg, police said.

They said the victims, who had not yet been identified, were four men and two women. Two bodies were found on the ground and four were in the wreckage.

The single-engine Piper plane had taken off from Belcherette, in the western canton of Vaud around 2.30 pm (1230 GMT) Saturday.

Witnesses said it overflew Tatroz twice before coming down 100 metres (yards) from a farm.
