After yesterday’s plane crash three of the four people aboard the small Cessna plane, which crashed near Flúdir in South Iceland, were in intensive care at the Landspítali hospital in Reykjavík.
Now two out of three have been discharged from the intensive care unit. A man in his forties is still in intensive care, but is said to be in stable condition.
The small plane, carrying three passengers, crashed into a summer hut quarter at Flúdir and according to some reports, was close to hitting a hut when crashing. The aviation authorities have issued a statement reiterating the rules for flying high above the ground and not to take unnecessary chances.
Onlookers have stated that the plane was flying very close to the ground and one wing seemed to hit a rock. Consequently, the plane hit the ground, flew up again and collapsed down a second time. People from nearby summerhouses came immediately to the help of the four inside the plane, all of whom were alert after the crash. A helicopter carried three to the hospital and the fourth was put in an ambulance.
