A tourist plane has crashed in western Switzerland killing three people; the pilot and his two passengers.
The Swiss Police stated that the light plane crashed on Saturday morning in Switzerland’s Ponts-de-Martel area close to the French border.
Rescue operations are proving difficult because of the steep terrain where the crash happened, the police stated.
Reuters reported that the crash occurred around 10:20 in the morning local time (0820 GMT) in a forest near the village of La Combe Dernier in the canton of Neuchâtel, the local police said.
The cause of the accident was not immediately known, but an investigation has been launched, they added.
