JOHANNESBURG - Paramedics are on the scene of a plane crash in Midrand.

A light aircraft crashed into the garden, slightly damaging two houses in Vorna Valley.

Two people -- the pilot and gardener on the ground -- were reportedly killed.

Netcare911 spokesperson Shawn Herbst said reports from the scene indicate that a light aircraft came down into a residential garden.

"After a scene assessment the pilot and a gardener tragically died," Herbst said.

"All necessary authorities are on scene and have secured the area for a South African Civil Aircraft Aviation investigation."
