One dead, two injured after aircraft crashes in Ndabibi, Naivasha

One person was killed after a light aircraft crashed on Monday in Ndabibi in Naivasha, Nakuru County.

The Aircraft with registration 5Y-BCL, owned and operated by Desert Locust crashed with three on board.

The other two suffered unspecified injuries and rushed to the Ndabibi health center amid plans for their evacuation.

After the crash, it was difficult for the community and responders to help in rescue since the area has thick vegetation.

Deputy county commissioner Kisilu Mutua said the aircraft might have crashed over bad weather.

In Kenya, July is the coldest month of the year and according to the Kenya Meteorological Department, the cold season normally extends through the month of August and partly September.

Last month, 11 KDF soldiers died after a chopper they were in crashed in Ol Tepesi, Kajiado County.

The soldiers were on a training mission when their Mi-171E chopper crashed several minutes after take-off from their base in Eastleigh, Nairobi.

The chopper was carrying 23 soldiers who were to be dropped in Magadi for a 24km walk when it went down.

Officials said 12 of those on board were rescued after apparently jumping out as the chopper crashed.
