Two Italian swimmers killed in air crash
Two Italian competitive swimmers died on Sunday when their ultralight aircraft crashed after take-off, the Italian swimming federation (FIN) confirmed.
Fabio Lombini, 22, and Gioele Rossetti, 23, were killed when their plane crashed and burst into flames shortly after take-off from the Crazy Fly flight school at Nettuno, 60km south of Rome.
"The Federation, distraught and stunned, expresses its deepest condolences to family, friends and clubs," the FIN said in a statement, adding that Rossetti appeared to be piloting the plane.
