Revealed: What caused Emiliano Sala's death

Revealed: What caused Emiliano Sala's death

12 Feb 2019, 10:40

Dorset Coroner’s Court has confirmed Emiliano Sala's death was caused by injuries to his head and trunk. 

Sala's body was recovered last week from the wreckage of the plane that disappeared over the English Channel last month on its way from Nantes to Cardiff. However, David Ibbotson, the pilot who was on board on the Piper Malibu aircraft is yet to be found. 

During Monday's hearing of the post-moterm examination, it was concluded that Sala's passing was caused by injuries to his head and trunk. There will now be an interim investigation which is expected to be concluded within the next six to 12 months.

“Mr. Sala was identified on February 7 by means of fingerprint evidence analyses by fingerprint expert Christopher Bradbury," said Ian Parry, a senior coroner’s officer for Dorset. 

“A post mortem was carried out after the body was taken to Holly Tree Lodge mortuary. Home office pathologist Mr Purdue gave the cause of death as 1a head and trunk injuries.”

The search continues for Ibbotson with a number of figures from the world of football having donated to a search fund set up by the pilot’s family.
