Three people jumped to safety from a plummeting aircraft before a fiery crash which killed eight skydivers, according to officials in Finland.

The survivors suffered only minor injuries after parachuting from the American-made Comp Air 8 kit light aircraft before it hit the ground and burst into flames, The Helsinki Times reported Monday. The pilot was among those who escaped.

The incident happened Sunday above the Jamijarvi airfield, some 130 miles from Helsinki.

Investigators have recovered the helmet camera from one of the parachutists involved although it is not clear whether it will help them with their investigation, The Helsinki Times reported.

Detective Superintendent Petri Kangas said an eyewitness had reported seeing a large piece of the aircraft fall off before it crashed.

“[The witness] was unable to tell whether it was a wing or another part,” Kangas told the newspaper.
