Officials are not sure why the plane made an emergency landing.
A small plane made an emergency landing Wednesday on a Portugal beach, killing a man and girl who were sunbathing there.

"The victims are a man and a child, eight years old".
Hundreds of sunbathers were on the beach at Caparica, 30 kilometers (20 miles) south of Lisbon, and some sunbathers reportedly ran into the sea to avoid the plane. Officials said they were not aware of any injured. Its operators lost control around 5 p.m. local time before skimming over the crowds and making the emergency landing, witnesses said.
Caparica beach was packed with sunbathers when the plane came down in sunny weather, at what is the height of the summer season.
The plane appeared to have a partly broken left wing, which hung lower than the right wing, Portuguese television pictures showed.
Some ran into the sea witnesses reported. 'They were hit by the plane and died at the scene'.
The dead girl was visiting the beach with her parents, who were unhurt, witnesses told local television channels. The two people in the plane were escorted away unhurt by the police, according to the Telegraph.
Firefighters and emergency services arrived at the beach shortly after the incident and cordoned off the area.
