A pilot and three passengers Saturday escaped without injuries after a light aircraft crash landed within Uhuru Gardens, Nairobi near Wilson Airport.

The plane had departed Rea Vipingo in Kilifi and was to land at the airport in Nairobi, officials said. Police and aviation officials said the plane developed mechanical complications as the pilot prepared to land at the airport. “No injury was reported as all the occupants of the plane disembarked from the plane after landing in the field,” said airports head of DCI Joseph Ngisa.
