A mini plane crash-landed shortly after it took-off in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo on Wednesday, June 16, killing all three occupants on board.
The plane was flying two pilots and a passenger when it went down hard near Kavumu airport, which serves Bukavu, the capital of South Kivu province, the region’s governor said.
First responders in fluorescent bibs picked through the crumpled wreckage in the middle of a large field, according to a Reuters witness at the crash site.
“I confirm the crash. There were three people on board who all died,” South Kivu Governor Theo Kasi told Reuters.
