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.

His blood was found to have a 58% Carbon Monoxide reading - a 50% reading can cause death.

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. An inquest earlier this year ruled that Sala died from severe injuries to his head and upper body, however, today’s findings suggest he could have been killed before he hit the water.
