Pilot dies in KZN plane crash
A light aircraft crash in KwaZulu-Natal claimed the life of one person on Sunday.
According to Paul Herbst of IPSS Medical Rescue, a group of kayakers spotted the aircraft crashing in the Umkomazi River valley.
When rescue services — including police search and rescue, and the Mountain Club of SA — went to the scene, there was nothing they could do.
“The wreckage was located by the [search and rescue] units and unfortunately this was not a survivable accident,” said Herbst.
It was only the pilot on board, he added.
