Five people, including four members of the same family, died in a plane crash in the French Alps on Saturday.
The accident happened in the afternoon shortly after take-off from Versoud Airport near Grenoble in southeastern France for what should have been a half-hour flight.
Eyewitnesses to the crash tipped off emergency services, who found the bodies of four adults and a child in the burnt-out wreckage of the plane.
About 60 firefighters came to the scene to extinguish the fire.
Grenoble’s prosecutors have ordered an investigation into what happened, regional officials said.
