Another resident told local media that she had arrived home from work just minutes before the crash, and her children were playing in their front garden when it happened.

Annabel Fernandez said: "We heard like a bomb, like a tremendous noise, and we went outside, and everything was on fire.

"Everything was bad, and you know, it got to a car. The plane could have, you know, got us all, and I'm very- we're in shock."
