DUBLIN — A small commuter aircraft carrying 12 people crashed and flipped on its back while trying to land in heavy fog at Cork Airport in southwest Ireland on Thursday, killing six people in the first crash of its kind in Irish history, the police and government said.

Police Superintendent Charlie Barry said four of the six survivors were hospitalized in serious condition, chiefly with broken ribs and limbs, while two others escaped with minor cuts and scrapes.

"Two actually walked out, miraculously," he said.

Among the dead on the flight from Belfast, Northern Ireland, were a senior Belfast accountant, the deputy master of Belfast Harbor, two pilots from Britain and Spain, and a relative of Irish President Mary McAleese.
