Five people were killed after the plane they were traveling in crashed in Namibia’s Zambezi region on Tuesday.

Local media reported that a German family of four and a South African pilot were onboard the Cessna 210 aircraft, which came down shortly after taking off from an airstrip on Impalila Island.

They had spent three nights at a lodge in Kasika before they travelled on the charter flight, local media reported.

Footage filmed by Namibia Broadcasting Corporation showed body bags being moved into a vehicle.

The cause of plane crash remains unknown.
