Four people are said to have escaped death narrowly after the small aircraft hey were flying in crashed inside the Nairobi National Park close to the Southern Bypass on Wednesday.

Confirming the incident, Langata OCPD Monica Kimani said the Cessna 5YBWE had a captain and three trainees on board at the time the airplane crashed into the national game park.
Kimani revealed that the flight accident emanated from an engine failure that occurred shortly after the aircraft took off from the nearby Wilson Airport.
Luckily, according to Kimani, no serious injuries were reported among the occupants as they escaped with minor bruises.
The police boss indicated that a Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) helicopter airlifted the four back to Wilson Airport for a medical checkup.

Eyewitnesses plying the Southern Bypass said the accident caused a major traffic build-up on the busy road as rescue efforts went on and curious onlookers milled at the scene.
