Three Swiss found dead along with plane wreckage in Kenya

PanARMENIAN.Net - A wildlife official says three Swiss nationals have been found dead along with the wreckage of their plane that went missing Thursday, July 25, in Kenya., according to The Associated Press.

Paul Mbugua, the spokesman of the Kenya Wildlife Service, said Saturday a KWS helicopter pilot involved in the search and rescue operation for the plane spotted the wreckage at 11,000 feet on one of the peaks of the Aberdares mountain range in central Kenya.

Mbugua says the helicopter pilot landed at the scene and confirmed the three occupants of the plane had died. Mbugua says the bodies will be retrieved Sunday.

A county police commander, Naomi Ichama, said Friday the Cessna 206 was headed to Wilson Airport in Nairobi from Nanyuki in central Kenya when it went missing at about 5 pm Thursday.
