Jonglei plane crash victims flown abroad for further treatment

Victims of a commercial plane crash on the outskirts of Bor Town in Jonglei State last week were discharged from a Bor hospital and flown abroad for further treatment, a local official said.
Speaking to Radio Tamazuj on Monday, Kuot John Akech, the director of Bor Airport said the Congolese pilot and two other passengers onboard the Let L-410 light aircraft of Abeer Air Services were flown to Kenya and Sudan for further treatment since last week.
“The Burundian pilot has no problem. But the Congolese pilot with fractures in the ribs is in Nairobi for further treatment. The two Sudanese businessmen with multiple fractures in the limbs were flown to Sudan for further medical attention. They were being treated at the UNMISS Hospital in Bor,” he explained.
John further noted that the injured are in stable condition and investigations are ongoing to establish the cause of the crash.
The light aircraft crashed on 27th October while carrying four people including two crew members.
