Sala suffered carbon monoxide poisoning before plane crash, report says
Emiliano Sala was exposed to harmful levels of carbon monoxide before he was killed in a plane crash and it is likely his pilot was also affected, accident investigators said.
Tests on the Cardiff striker’s body found enough evidence of the harmful gas to cause a heart attack, seizure or unconsciousness, an interim report by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) stated.
It is likely that pilot David Ibbotson was also “affected to some extent” by exposure to carbon monoxide, the document added.
