"EMILIANO SALA" Corpse Found Underwater
The Piper Malibu, which carried the Cardiff striker was found at the bottom of the English Channel on Sunday morning. The AAIB, who are working in coordination with Blue Water Recoveries Ltd, found their object of interest on Sunday.
A remotely operated vehicle [ROV] was sent to look into the area of possible wreckage. The ROV footage found an object which AAIB investigators concluded it to be the wreckage of the plane.
The AAIB released pictures of the plane wreckage, which shows the rear left side of the fuselage, as well as part of the aircraft's registration. The body found in the wreckage is yet to be identified. AAIB is now looking into finding out attributes that match with Sala to confirm the unidentified corpse.
The aircraft went missing on January 21 in which Sala was flying from Nantes to Cardiff after he had completed Premier League.
The investigators halted the search for three days saying it is quite impossible for anyone to live after the wreckage until when a fund-raising event cropped up collecting 3,00,000 Euros for the accomplishment of the search.
Sala's father Horacio told Argentinian media Cronica TV: "I cannot believe it. This is a dream. A bad dream. I am desperate. I communicated with them every day, but since I do not have WhatsApp it's hard to call them or call me. They told me that the days passed and there was no news of Emiliano or the plane."
