Canadian pilot killed in Guyana jungle crash

A Canadian pilot whose single engine plane went down two days ago over Guyana's thick jungle was found dead at the crash site Monday along with a Guyanese co-worker, officials said.

Guyanese special forces found the bodies of Trans Guyana Aviation pilot Blake Slater and cargo loader Dwayne Newton on reaching the aircraft.

"Both persons on board perished in the crash. The pilot was found in his seat," a statement from the Search and Rescue Coordination Centre said.

Slater reported engine failure shortly after takeoff Saturday from Olive Creek on a shuttle run to Imbaimadai, a gold mining area deep in Guyana's jungle.
