Family Dead After French Alps Vacation

A family of five has died as a result of a plane crash during their flight home from vacationing in France.

This terrible accident occurred on Saturday shortly after takeoff from an airport near the French Alps. According to a witness the twin engine plane collided with a hill and burst into flames but the cause of the crash remains unknown.

Passengers on the plane included the pilot along with his wife and three children.

Later it was confirmed that those in the Morocco registered plane where vacationing in France and were flying back home to Morocco. When the accident occurred the plane went off of the radar and could no longer be traced.

Fortunately no one was hurt from ground level but the family lost their lives from the crash. A small fire occurred from the crash but burned out before anyone arrived on the scene of the accident.
