Landing quickly nearby, the panicked father rushed to the site - fearing what he might see.
'I managed to get the door of the plane open and we started pulling people out onto the beach,' he said. 'There was fuel leaking everywhere and we just got them out as quickly as we could.'
Thankfully his son was okay - coming away with a fractured foot.
A British backpacker was also pulled from the wreckage, however she was unable to be revived and was later pronounced dead by paramedics. The pilot of the crashed plane is recovering in hospital.
The cause of the crash is being investigated.
