FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (FOX 13) - A small banner plane crashed into a building along a beach in South Florida this afternoon.
The view from WSVN-TV's helicopter showed the twisted wreckage of the yellow plane amid debris on the roof of a building in Fort Lauderdale.
Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Chief Stephen Gollan said that the plane hit the under-construction building between the 16th and 17th floors, then fell to the pool deck.
A witness told WSVN that he saw the banner get snagged on something before the plane went down.
Gollan said one person on the plane died in the crash. No injuries on the ground were immediately reported.
