A J-7 fighter jet crashed this morning in downtown Shantou, a city in Guangdong Province, setting a house on fire and injuring three people inside.
The air crash happened around 9am. The pilot parachuted to safety but his aircraft fell on a house in the city's Jinping District, setting off a big explosion.
One of the four people in the burning house managed to run out on his own. The other three were rescued and sent to a hospital for fire injuries.
The local fire brigade confirmed that crashed aircraft was a J-7 jet fighter, not a helicopter as CCTV news originally reported.
