Accident: German family of four dies in plane crash in Namibia

A family of four from Germany died in a plane crash in southwest African Namibia. The couple chartered a Cessna 210 with their two daughters and had an accident on Tuesday afternoon on the edge of the Zambezi River, chief inspector Elifas Kuwinga told the German Press Agency on Wednesday.

The plane crashed minutes after takeoff from the runway on Impalila, a small river island in the northeast of the country, Kuwinga said. The South African pilot also died in the accident. The cause of the accident remained unclear on Wednesday. Investigations have been initiated.

Namibia with its 2.5 million inhabitants is a popular holiday destination, especially for Germans. It's known for its diverse landscapes, including the Namib Desert, the fertile Caprivi Strip, the deserted Skeleton Coast with numerous shipwrecks, and the rocky gorges of the Fishriver Canyon.
