Scene Of Plane Crash Being Surveyed By Investigators”

A seven-year-old boy killed in a light aircraft crash in Co Offaly was the son of a parachutist who made a scheduled jump just minutes earlier.

Speaking about what he witnessed, Mr Slattery, who lives near the parachute club, said he was out walking his dog and saw the plane take off from the airfield.

All 16 jumped from the plane, but it crashed in bogland shortly afterwards.

It is understood the pilot - reported to be from the United Kingdom - and a seven-year-old boy were still onboard.

It's understood that the light aircraft crashed around 11km from Edenderry.

Sridevi to be honored with an eminent award at Cannes Film Festival
Yesterday afternoon, Kristen Stewart was on the red carpet at Cannes making her way to the screening of BlacKkKlansman . But as she posed for the shutterbugs for pictures, she removed her stilettos and walked barefoot on the red carpet.

The plane was partially submerged in the bog. I thought he was doing a stunt and was waiting for him to pull out.

"I heard a bad roaring and it went straight down like a torpedo", Jimmy Slattery said. And when it hit the tree line, the tail moved and I knew there was something wrong.

The crash happened a few kilometres away in bog land near Edenderry.

Gardaí said last night that they would not be releasing the names of the victims until they were satisfied that all family members had been informed. That's all I know.

It is noted that the flight took place on the territory of the parachute club, the causes of the crash are being investigated.
