Police say a 19-year-old British student fell at least 3,500 feet (1.07 kilometers) to her death from a small airplane in Madagascar after opening a door in mid-air and climbing out.
Natural sciences student Alana Cutland fell from a Cessna C168 on the island nation off Africa’s east coast on July 25. Her body has not been found. There are fears it may never be found because large carnivorous felines live there.
Police said that Cutland unbuckled her seat belt, opened the plane door and tried to get out. He said another passenger struggled to hold onto her for several minutes before Cutland broke free and dropped.
