The Piper landed in a field east of the runway, while the Cessna fell into a “water retention pond,” officials said.

CBS affiliate KLAS-TV reported that all four people involved in the crash died.

“There were no survivors,” the Clark County Department of Aviation said in a statement, according to KLAS-TV.
