NEW YORK, July 28. /ITAR-TASS/. One man was killed and a child injured after a light plane crash landed on a beach in the US state of Florida on Sunday afternoon, local media reported.

The New York Daily News reported Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, that a pilot and his passenger flying 1972 Piper Cherokee light aircraft sent a distress call before trying to attempt an emergency landing at the Caspersen Beach.

Both the pilot and the passenger emerged unhurt after they crash landed the aircraft, however, a man walking his daughter along the beach was reported killed by the crashed aircraft and his nine-years-old girl was hospitalized suffering grave injuries.
