6th victim found in small plane crash in Mexico

MEXICO CITY — Officials in the western Mexico state of Michoacan say they have located a sixth victim in the crash of a small plane.

The Michoacan state prosecutor’s office says the 32-year-old pilot’s body was recovered Thursday. Authorities had confirmed the deaths of five people aboard the aircraft Wednesday.

The plane crashed Wednesday afternoon in the township of Madero. Photographs from the scene showed the small aircraft upside down in a river.

In a statement Thursday, the prosecutor’s office said it had identified three of the passengers and also had the pilot’s passport.

The state public safety agency said Wednesday that the flight originated in the northern state of Durango and was headed to the southern state of Guerrero.
