Flyet krasjet på en parkeringsplass utenfor supermarkedet Lidl ved byen Cascais.

Ifølge nyhetsbyrået Reuters omkom én person på bakken da flyet krasjet i en lastebil som tok fyr.

En sveitsisk pilot og tre franske passasjerer omkom i flystyrten. Totalt har fem personer mistet livet. Det er ikke kjent hvor mange som er skadd i ulykken.

Årsaken til ulykken er ukjent.
