The pilot was caught in the burning wreckage of a twin-engine Beechcraft King Air and died before he could be rescued, said firefighters on scene.
Video obtained by Reuters showed the wreckage of the plane burning at around 6 p.m. local time (9 p.m. GMT). “It was travelling at a slightly faster speed than normal, and a little lower than normal,
I think,” said Alex Martins, who was driving by when the crash occured. “It passed above me on the street.”
“We heard the noise of an explosion. Straight away, there was a plume of black smoke,” he added.
The G1 News website reported that the founders of Videplast, a leading plastic industry company that makes flexible packaging, Nereu and Geraldo Denardi, were among the passengers who survived.
