Brazilian authorities say a small jet has crashed at Rio de Janeiro's domestic airport, but that all three people aboard have survived.

It is not clear if the jet crashed as it was taking off or trying to land.

Television images show the intact jet floating on Thursday in the waters of the Guanabara Bay, just a few feet from the runway. Firefighters entered the water to secure the aircraft with ropes.

Firefighters at the airport say all three people aboard were rescued.

The Santos Dumont airport has been closed temporarily because of the accident.
