Plane crashes in Laguna, damages two resorts

A plane crashed in Calamba City in Laguna province, hitting two resorts on Sunday afternoon. City Mayor Justin Chipeco confirmed to the Inquirer that a small plane crashed around 3:30 p.m. Jeffrey Rodriguez, head of the city Public Order and Safety Office, said the plane crashed in Barangay (village) Pansol, particularly in Miramonte subdivision, a popular location of private resorts. “We have secured the area, the Bureau of Fire is here. (But) we don’t have (information) anything yet in the passengers of the plane,” he said in a phone interview from the site. Rodriguez said the plane hit two resorts. He said a resort caretaker was able to escape but left behind a child. As of 4 p.m., Rodriguez said they were able to rescue the said child “who dove into a pool” in order to avoid injuries from the plane. On Saturday, another plane also crashed off Nasugbu, Batangas. The two pilots were rescued by fishermen.
