Two people died on Wednesday after two light aircraft collided near Radom, central Poland, in what was the third air crash in Poland in five days.
“The bodies of two people were found in a plane that fell into a reservoir in the village of Wsola,” confirmed police spokesperson Justyna Leszczynska.
The second plane crashed in the whereabouts of the nearby village of Jedlinsk. Two people on board were taken to hospital, but it is understood that their injuries are not life-threatening.
Ten crews of the region's fire brigade were called into action after the accident was reported after midday on Wednesday.
11 people died on Saturday near Czestochowa, southern Poland, when a skydiving trip went wrong, apparently owing to a faulty engine.
On Monday a German pilot who had taken off from an air club near Zielona Gora, western Poland, survived a crash unscathed. (nh)
