Plane Crashes in Pretoria, South Africa

At least 19 people have been injured in a plane crash near the city of Pretoria in South Africa.

"Medics from ER24 and other services are at the scene of a plane crash at Wonderboom in Pretoria", said a spokesman for ER24.

"Their injuries range from minor to critical", he said. Video of the plane's takeoff shows smoke streaming behind it.

Paramedics helped survivors out of the aircraft and treated patients at the scene as firefighters tackled the smoking wreckage.

Meiring said there were two air ambulance helicopters on the scene.

The fuselage was marked Martin's Air Charter.

He said the pilot was in a critical condition following the crash.

The plane went down on Tuesday 10 July 2018, crashing into a small factory.

"We are not sure what happened at this stage", Rosella Passier, the Aviodrome's marketing manager, told AFP in The Hague.

Shortly afterwards the plane crashed into the factory.

The plane had been due to fly later this week to Aviodrome via east Africa, through Egypt, Croatia, Austria to the Netherlands. It had just been refurbished for 350,000 euros ($410,000) at Wonderboom.

At the same time, the Civil Aviation Authority says its officials will continue their investigation on Wednesday morning.
