    Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) confirmed the incident.

    The two, a father and son, died on the spot.

    Reports indicated that the accident occurred at 10 am. The aircraft is owned by Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. 

    Speaking to the press, Teresia Igiria, the Head of Corporate Communications at the KWS, affirmed that more details would be released at a later time.

    Four passengers on board, were, however, rescued from the wreckage, according to Lang’ata OCPD Monica Kimani.
