WARSAW, Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- Six people were killed in two separate small plane crashes in the southern part of Poland on Sunday night, local media reported.

A 42-year-old pilot and three teenage girls were killed when a Cesna 182 plane crashed into a house in Krakow's district of Nowa Huta on Sunday evening.

Nobody inside the building was hurt, a spokesman from Malopolska province police told the PAP news agency.

In another development, a small plane carrying two men crashed in Witowice Dolne, a village near the town of Nowy Sacz about the same time of the first accident.

The plane was traveling from a local air club in Lososina Dolna.
