KUALA LUMPUR:  Two people were seriously injured and a third suffered minor injuries after a small private plane crashed in Malaysia, police said.

The Cessna 172 had three adults on board when it crashed late Friday in a forest area just north of the capital Kuala Lumpur, local police chief Abdul Rahim Abdullah said.

“We were alerted of the crash late Friday and immediately launched a search and rescue operation,” he said. “We found the three men early today” with local assistance, Abdul Rahim added.

All three crash victims have been admitted into a public hospital after a two-hour journey out of the jungle.                       AFP
