Death toll rises to two in Mexican small plane crash
The death toll rose to two on Sunday in a small plane crash in northern Mexico a day earlier, dpa reported.
Two passengers died of their injuries and three others were also severely injured when the Cessna crashed and caught on fire less than half a kilometre from the airstrip at the Ramos Arizpe airport in Coahuila state, officials said.
The occupants, reporters and provincial government officials, suffered severe burns and were brought to a clinic in San Diego, California. One of the journalists was practically unhurt.
Initial indications showed the motor had stopped working, making it impossible for the pilot to navigate to the airport.
