Four people escaped death by a whisker after the plane they were in crash-landed on Wednesday morning in the Luunga area of Binga.

The Herald reports that the single-engine Cessna plane, registration number ZSIZG a C210, which is believed to have left Kariba Airport on Wednesday morning, ceased mid-air at Chibuyu in the Luunga area of Binga under chief Sinakatenge about 180km from Binga.

The plane was headed for Sijarira Forests on the south western shores of Lake Kariba when it crash-landed.

Sijarira Forests are a hit with wilderness-loving tourists as they offer game viewing, fishing and swimming opportunities.

The four were rescued and transported to a camp in Sengwa for first aid before they were ferried by boat to the Rhino Camp and later transferred to a health facility in Kariba.
