An airplane crashed on an island in Lake Mälaren this afternoon, but the pilot and his two passengers escaped with only minor injuries.

The single-engine passenger plane suffered a problem with its motor just after take-off. The plane crashed in a grassy field on the island of Björnön, just a few hundred meters from the Västerås airport in central Sweden.

The plane's wings were riven from its body. News agency TT reported that one passenger had complained of a head ache and another of back pains, but the passengers' injuries were considered minor.
