Moscow, Feb 4 : Underwater footage shows one body in the wreckage of the plane that was carrying football player Emiliano Sala from France to the United Kingdom, the UK government said Monday.
"Tragically, in video footage from the [underwater remotely operated vehicle] ROV, one occupant is visible amidst the wreckage. The [Air Accidents Investigation Branch] AAIB is now considering the next steps, in consultation with the families of the pilot and passenger, and the police," the government said in a statement.
A small plane carrying Sala to Cardiff was reported missing in late January after it disappeared near Alderney island in the English Channel. An underwater search began on Sunday.
Sala, born in Argentina, was expected to join Cardiff City football club in a transfer from Nantes club in France. SPUTNIK
