The tragic death of Cardiff City’s striker, Emiliano Sala has been looked into and it showed that he died from “head and trunk” injuries when the plane crashed in the English Channel on the 21st of January.
The newly-signed striker was travelling from Nantes, France to join his new teammates at Cardiff City when he lost his life in the crashed plane, alongside pilot David Ibbotson whose body is yet to be found.
Sala’s body was discovered after a search was privately-funded and led by David Mearns. Emiliano Sala had to be identified by his fingerprints after his body was recovered from the accident scene.
“Mr Sala was identified on the 7th February by means of fingerprint evidence analyses by fingerprint expert Christopher Bradbury,” Ian Parry, a senior coroner’s officer for Dorset, said.
“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 head and trunk injuries.”
The investigation of his death has been adjourned until November 6 for review.
According to The Sun, an interim report is set to be released within two weeks.
