French Ambassador to Madagascar Jean-Marc Chataignier had a miraculous escape when his small plane crashed in the southeast part of the Indian Ocean island nation, officials told Xinhua Wednesday.
The single-engined four-seater plane crashed Tuesday in a rice field in Farafangana after engine failure.
A few minutes after take-off, the pilot noted that one of the engine’s cylinders had overheated and turned back. The pilot tried a crash landing in the rice field. He was injured in the process, officials said, without giving details.
