SEVEN people including two Spanish tourists died yesterday, April 20, when a light aircraft crashed in the Dominican Republic.
The plane, which had taken off from Punta Cana airport, crashed on a golf course in Bavaro, in the La Altagracia Province.
A Spanish Foreign Office spokesperson said that diplomatic staff had been sent to the area to gather more information as reports on the accident were not clear.
Technicians from the Dominican Civil Aviation Institute (IDAC) and members of the Civil Aviation Board Accident Investigation Committee have travelled to the scene to investigate.
Although initial reports in the local press suggested two British tourists were also onboard the flight, the British Foreign Office has denied this.
