Four people died in plane crash in Swiss Alps
The plane went down 3,300 meters (10,800 feet) above sea level at 4:45 pm (1445 GMT) yesterday in an area known as the Dunand Pass, police in southern Valais canton said in a statement.
They identified the plane as a four-seater made by the French firm Robin and which had taken off from Sion airport for "a pleasure flight".
After receiving an alert, authorities dispatched rescue teams to the summit but found the pilot and three passengers dead at the scene.
The victims have not yet been formally identified.
