Three killed in plane crash in Australia

Airplane C-130 was involved in firefighting in the Australian state of New South Wales.

“We still don’t know what caused the fall. We simply lost contact with the device”, explained Shane Fitzsimmons, head of the Rural Fire Service (RFS) in New South Wales.

Fitzsimmons said the three dead were US citizens who were part of the state’s fire-fighting component. “The firefighters’ fraternity is like a family, a small family, and the crew were well known, not just here in Australia”, he said.
