(NOBLESVILLE) - A man who witnessed a small plane crash into an Indiana golf course says he rushed to try to help, but both occupants were dead when he got there.

Eric Smith tells the Indianapolis Star he was the first to reach the plane Thursday afternoon when it circled above the Harbour Trees Golf Club in Noblesville before crashing onto one of the greens.

The 45-year-old Smith, who lives near the golf course says he pulled away a wing that was lying on top of 1 of the occupants, but the man had no pulse. Only when emergency personnel arrived did he realize there was a second man in the plane.

Noblesville Police Lt. Bruce Barnes says the identities of the victims wouldn't be released until family members are notified.
