Small jet crashes at Brazil airport; no one killed
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — A small executive jet crashed at Rio's domestic airport Thursday, but no one was killed or seriously hurt in the accident, authorities said.
A spokesman with the Brazilian government's airport authority said the aircraft landed normally in clear weather, "but for reasons that are not yet known, it was unable to stop and skidded off the runway into the sea."
He confirmed that three people on board were rescued and were not hurt, but could not immediately say if they were the only people on board or where the plane had taken off.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to discuss the matter.
Television images showed the intact jet floating in the waters of the Guanabara Bay, just a few feet from the runway. Firefighters entered the water to secure the aircraft with ropes.
The Santos Dumont airport was closed because of the accident and had yet to reopen by midmorning.
