A second person has reportedly died following Tuesday’s plane crash near Wonderboom airport in the north of Pretoria.
According to media reports, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) confirmed the person died in hospital on Wednesday.
The CAA was not available for more information at the time of going to press.
Rekord earlier reported that the first air crash victim has been identified as Pretoria resident Chris Barnard.
The aircraft was reportedly on a test flight.
Of the 20 people on the plane, three passengers were from the Netherlands and two from Australia as well as a number of South African citizens, including technicians and an employee of Rovos Rail.
Four passengers were trapped in the wreckage.
Investigations at the crash site continued on Wednesday.
Rekord visited the scene on Wednesday morning, but it was still closed off while authorities investigated.
A building on a dairy farm near the crash site suffered severe damage when the plane crashed into it.
Two people inside the building were also seriously injured.
Moorddrift Dairy CEO Stephen Smit said the barn on the premises was almost completely destroyed.
“All the dairy products will be moved to a storage space in Rosslyn,” said Smit.
“Hopefully we will be operational again on Friday.”
