World 800m record holder David Rudisha has explained how he narrowly escaped death: “All was well close to seven or eight minutes into the flight when the engine of the plane suddenly went quiet.”

He was one of the five passengers in the aircraft that crashed on Saturday, October 10, in the Kajiado neighborhood of Imbirikana.

After attending the event at the Kimana Wildlife Sanctuary in Kajiado South in the afternoon, Rudisha reported that the jet flew off without incident.

“We thank God we all came out alive with some soft tissue injuries that were treated before all were discharged save for one,” said Rudisha, as they were evacuated to Makindu Hospital for treatment.

Kenya Masters Athletics chairman Stephen Ole Marai, who got injured in his right ribs, had to be transferred to Nairobi West Hospital from Makindu for specialised treatment.

“It was a scary episode where you hold your heart in your hand as you pray to God. The pilot did an incredible job to keep the plane afloat and stable for long,” said Rudisha, the 2011 Daegu and 2015 Beijing World 800m champion.
