An eight-year-old girl and 50-year-old man have been killed after a plane crash landed on a beach near Lisbon, according to local media reports.
Eyewitnesses said sunbathers ran towards the sea as the light aircraft made an emergency landing on the packed beach at Caparica, 30 kilometres south of the Portuguese capital.
The child was enjoying a day at the beach with her parents, who were unhurt in the incident, eyewitnesses said.
The man who died had been sunbathing on a towel when the plane passed over his legs, they said.
No others on the beach were thought to have been hurt.
The small aircraft, reportedly a Cessna, carrying two people appeared to be in difficulty and wobbled as it skimmed low over the sunbathers, scattering them and spreading panic on the beach, according to local media reports.
The bodies lay covered on the sand as police cordoned off the area.
The two occupants of the plane were unhurt and were led away by police.
