Two bodies of victims of Saturday's Lake Nakuru helicopter crash have reportedly been retrieved from the lake and have been taken to Umash Mortuary in Nakuru via a military ambulance.
The two bodies were recovered in the ongoing search operation that resumed on Monday morning after two days of no results.
Initial investigations point out that the pilot could have hit a tree in the Lake Nakuru National Park before it crashed into the saline lake.
“From the recovered parts, it is almost clear the pilot hit something before the crash,” an investigator who sought anonymity told The Standard.
On Sunday, a file belonging to the pilot, a first aid box, ear phones, the plane’s seat, door, logbook, a pair of shoes were found in the Northeastern part of the lake's shore.
The five occupants of the aircraft have been identified as Sam Gitau, John Mapozi, Anthony Kipyegon, Veronicah Kamau and the pilot, Apollo Malowa.
