Argentine footballer and forward Emiliano Raúl Sala Taffarel and his pilot had been exposed to harmful levels of carbon monoxide in the cockpit of their private plane when it crashed into the English Channel, it was revealed today.
The 28-year-old Argentine striker was killed on January 21 when a plane carrying him crashed two days after he had signed a £15million transfer to Cardiff City from French club Nantes.
The UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch revealed that both him and pilot David Ibbotson, 59, whose body has not yet been found, had been exposed to harmful levels of carbon monoxide.
After a major search, Sala’s body was found and taken to Dorset’s Portland Port on February 7.
An inquest later that month in Bournemouth stated he died of severe head and upper body injuries.
Daniel Machover, the lawyer for the Sala family, said today that, “That dangerously high levels of Carbon monoxide have been found in Emiliano’s body raises many questions for the family.”
“How he died will be determined at the inquest in due course. The family believes that a detailed technical examination of the plane is necessary”, he added.
He further explained that “The family and the public need to know how the carbon monoxide was able to enter the cabin. Future air safety rests on knowing as much as possible on this issue”.
An interim report by the Farnborough-based AAIB revealed Mr. Ibbotson did not have a license for commercial flights.
An official report previously stated that the plane involved in the crash fell thousands of feet in just 24 seconds before crashing into the sea and splitting into three parts.
The aircraft took off at 7.15pm GMT on January 21 and flew on its planned route at an altitude of 5,500 feet until it was just south of Guernsey at 8.02pm.
At that point, Mr. Ibbotson descended to fly at 5,000 feet to maintain visibility.
The last radio communication received from the aircraft was at 8.12pm when the pilot asked for and was granted permission to reduce altitude again.
But at 8.16pm, while performing a right turn, the aircraft descended rapidly and crashed into the sea.
The wreckage was found on the seabed, 30 meters from where final radar readings located it.
The mangled wreck, which was found in three parts, was held together by electrical and flying control cables.
In the days following the accident, two-seat cushions, an armrest and possible parts from the fuselage washed up along the coast of the Cotentin Peninsula in France.
A seat cushion also washed up in Bonne Nuit Bay on the north coast of Jersey.
Emiliano Sala disappeared on January 21, 2019, and was confirmed dead February 7, 2019.
It’s Not Wrong For A Lady To Accept A Proposal From A Married Man : Counselor Lutterodt Claims
Counselor George Lutterodt, the controversial Ghanaian pastor/relationship counselor never ceases to amaze his followers and listeners with some of his ridiculous teachings.
The latest from Counselor George Lutterodt is that it is never wrong to accept a proposal from a married man if you are a lady.
According to Counselor Lutterodt, ladies who are interested in married men have been kept in check and held back with the false threats that Karma will visit them. He stated emphatically that there is nothing like Karma when it comes to dating married men.
Instead, Counselor Lutterodt revealed that most married women have dated a married man before and they did not return the properties they got from the affair when they broke it off and finally married.
But, they will be making jabs and issuing threats to ladies not to date married men now that they themselves are married.
Counselor Lutterodt encouraged young ladies to go all out and date whoever they want even if the person is married and more especially if he is rich.
The controversial Ghanaian celebrity critic was speaking on TV Africa Morning Show on Thursday, 22nd August 2019 when he made the bold assertions.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Agrees New Long-Term Deal With Liverpool Until 2023
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has signed a new long-term contract until 2023 with European champions, Liverpool.
The England winger, 26, who joined Liverpool from Arsenal for £35million in 2017 has scored five goals in 47 games for the club.
Chamberlain returned to first-team football at the end of last season after suffering a serious knee injury in April 2018.
On inking the long-term deal, he told Liverpoolfc.com: ‘I’m really, really excited – it’s been in the pipeline for a little while, so it’s nice to finally get it done and just extend my time here, which I am really looking forward to.
‘I feel like I missed out on a year, which I obviously did, so it’s really exciting for me to be able to sign. It’s something that I feel is an opportunity to give that year back and make up for lost time – and hopefully put in some good performances to make amends for not being around last year.
‘You’ve got to count your blessings every time you get an opportunity like this, you don’t get the chance to play for Liverpool Football Club every day. I am really excited to be able to extend my time here.’
‘I can promise the supporters that I’ll give them absolutely everything moving forward,’ he added.
‘There might be times where I have bad games and good games and moments where it’s not so good, but I’ll always work through those moments and give my everything to correct them and keep pushing this team forward.
‘I hope that I can do some special things like I did before I got injured and, most of all, be a part of this group of players that go on to hopefully win more things.
‘I’m really excited to see what the future holds for us all and I look forward to seeing them every game moving forward.’
