On Sunday, a plane carrying four people crashed over the Baltic Sea. The private plane was headed from Spain to Cologne, but continued to fly, crossing the island of RĂ¼gen, among other things. Shortly before Latvia, the machine crashed into the sea.

The Air Force confirmed the crash on Twitter on Sunday evening. Prior to this, all contact with the aircraft was lost. Several alarm squads, including those from Rostock-Laz, were raised to gauge the unusual flight behavior. According to preliminary findings, the pilot was apparently unconscious.

The famous Cologne businessman was a pilot

Aviation safety expert Hans Kajal told Swedish news agency TT pressure problems that could cause passengers to lose consciousness. This can happen quickly, especially at altitudes where smaller aircraft are used. As reported by the Swedish newspaper “Degens Nyheter”, the aircraft was a Cessna 551.
