Carbon monoxide poisoning typically occurs from breathing in carbon monoxide (CO) at excessive levels. Symptoms are often described as "flu-like" and commonly include headache, dizziness

Argentine football player Emiliano Sala and his pilot were exposed to dangerous levels of carbon monoxide before their small plane crashed in the English Channel, killing them both, air accident British investigators said on Wednesday.

Sala, 28, was flying from his previous club Nantes, in western France, to Wales to join Cardiff City when the single-engine Piper Malibu aircraft disappeared over the English Channel in January. His body was recovered when the wreckage of the plane was finally discovered about two weeks later.

Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when carbon monoxide builds up in your bloodstream. Carbon monoxide poisoning can be particularly dangerous for people who are sleeping or intoxicated. People may have irreversible brain damage or even die before anyone realizes there's a problem.

Pilot David Ibbotson’s body has not been found.

A special bulletin from Britain's Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) said Wednesday that toxicology tests on Sala’s blood had shown that he had a saturation level of 58% of carboxyhaemoglobin (COHb), a mixture of carbon monoxide (CO) and haemoglobin.

Exposure to carbon monoxide can lead to damage to the brain, heart and nervous system and a COHb level of over 50% is considered to be potentially fatal, causing seizure, unconsciousness or a heart attack.

"It is clear from the symptoms that exposure to CO can reduce or inhibit a pilot’s ability to fly an aircraft depending on the level of that exposure", the report said "In this type of aircraft, the cockpit is not separated from the cabin and it is considered likely that the pilot would also have been affected to some extent by exposure to CO."

The Catch-up: Footballer Sala 'was poisoned' before plane crash What happened? Footballer Emiliano Sala was exposed to harmful levels of carbon monoxide before he was killed in a plane crash, accident investigators said today. Tests on the striker’s body found enough evidence of the harmful gas to cause a heart attack, seizure or unconsciousness, the report says. His blood was found to have a 58% Carbon Monoxide reading - a 50% reading can cause death. High levels of CO Sala and pilot David Ibbotson crashed when their Piper Malibu aircraft crashed in the Channel on January 21, three days after he had signed for Cardiff City. Sala’s body was recovered on February 6 but Mr Ibbotson has not been located.

Sala's family said a detailed examination of the plane wreckage was needed to determine how the gas was able to leak into the cabin.

"That dangerously high levels of carbon monoxide have been found in Emiliano’s body raises many questions for the family. How he died will be determined at the inquest in due course," they said in a statement. "Future air safety rests on knowing as much as possible on this issue."

The AAIB said its investigations were continuing and that a final report would be published in due course.
