Autopsy result: Emiliano Sala has not drowned

Bournemouth –

Argentine footballer Emiliano Sala died of head and trunk injuries in the plane crash over the English Channel. This is the result of the autopsy, which was published on Monday in Bournemouth, England.

The 28-year-old wanted to fly from France to his new club Cardiff City in Wales three weeks ago. Over the English Channel, the propeller plane disappeared with the footballer previously active for FC Nantes and his pilot aboard the radar screens.

After nearly two weeks of searching, the plane was discovered at the bottom of the sea. Gone is the corpse of the pilot David Ibbotson. His wife and daughter urged him to continue to search for him. Donations are supposed to support that. (AP)
