A man accused of rape kidnapped his daughter, stole a small plane and buzzed a major city before crashing into the parking lot of a mall, killing himself and his 5-year-old child, police said Friday. Officials said no one was injured on the ground. Kleber Barbosa da Silva argued with his wife and forced her from a moving car Thursday afternoon near the central state capital of Goiania, then fled with their daughter, said a Goiania police official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk about the case. The wife was hospitalized in critical condition.
