Plane Crash

Check Out what Cape Town Community Residents did to a Crashed Aircraft and the Pilots.

Sometimes we have to sit back and ask ourselves where humanity has gone to in this country. People are so desperate to steal at any given opportunity even if it will cost others their lives no one cares.

Earlier today, Lower Crossroads community residents in Cape Town stole from two pilots following the crashing of their light aircraft which had an engine failure and was forced to make an emergency landing on an open field in Luzuko.

The pilots occupying the aircraft managed to escape with minor wounds but they couldn’t protect their belongings because daft community residents broke into the aircraft and stripped it of everything there in.

According to a statement issued by the City’s Mayco Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith, said a group of community residents quickly stormed the scene after the plane crash landed. This was shortly followed by a report from pilot radio aircraft control calling for urgent assistance as they were being stripped of valuables by the criminal residents.

Smith confirm the aircraft

is owned by local aviation school at the airport and was on a training flight when the aircraft’s engine malfunctioned resulting to the crash. They managed to land and escape the plane without serious injuries. Both pilots were taken to hospital for examination and possible treatment.

Some resident of the area who spoke to newsmen said what other members of the community did was evil and they didn’t show ubuntu. She said the few that assisted the victimized pilots were verbally abused by the looters and accused of thinking they were superior.

“What happened today shows how cruel we are. Those people were traumatised already about escaping death. there was no need for the community to traumatise them the more,” she said.

“On behalf of this community I would like to apologise to the victims for the bad behaviour they experienced today.”

She asked for the community to do better next time and be better citizens.
