The 41-year-old said at the time of the incident, he had just left a nearby petrol station and saw the aircraft flying too low.





“I had just finished refuelling my motorbike and as soon as I hit the road, I saw the aircraft flying too low and there was a loud sound coming from it as if it was running out of fuel.

“I immediately made a U-turn and followed the aircraft because I knew it would crash. A few seconds later, I saw the aircraft hit the lamp post and one of the wings broke off before it spun and crashed in the floodgate,” he said when met at the scene.

The witness, who declined to be named, said he immediately dialled 999 to inform the authorities about the incident.
