Two children missing after Connecticut air crash
NEW YORK CITY, New York (AFP) - United States (US) rescue workers scrambled on Friday to find two children missing and feared dead after a twin-engine aircraft crashed into two houses in Connecticut.
The Rockwell International Turbo Commander 690B crashed on approach into Tweed New Haven airport before noon, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
It was on a short flight from Teterboro airport outside New York City, it said in a statement.
Local media said the aircraft hit two clapboard houses in a densely populated section of East Haven, with two children - one about one year old, the other 13 - inside one of the homes.
