GENEVA (Reuters) – A British composer of film and television music and an acclaimed saxophonist died along with their baby in a plane crash in Switzerland on Sunday, a family spokesman said on Tuesday.

The couple, Jonathan Goldstein and Hannah Marcinowicz, had posted updates of their trip on Facebook, with a last update from Lausanne on Saturday afternoon and pictures of him flying their small plane while she held their infant daughter. They left Lausanne’s La Blecherette airport early on Sunday.

Police in the Swiss canton of Valais did not name the family but said a Piper aircraft heading for Italy crashed into the Simplon Pass in the Alps around 10.25 a.m. (0825 GMT) on Sunday, after taking off from a Swiss airfield, killing three people including a baby.
