Remains of four Río de la Plata plane crash victims repatriated
Bodies of four of the five people who lost their lives this week when a light aircraft that was taking them to Uruguay crashed into the Río de la Plata have been repatriated. An Uruguayan court authorized the process that brought the victims back to Argentina aboard the Eladia Isabel ship owned by the Buquebus company.
The remains of Communications Director of Renault Gustavo Fosco (53 years old); Press Chief of Renault Fernando Sánchez (45 years old); the head of Royal Caning Facundo Alecha (41 years old) and manager of the TTS company Fernando Lonigro (44 years old) arrived in Buenos Aires this morning.
The only body that remains in the neighbouring country is the pilot’s, Leandro Larriera, who had a 12-year flight experience and was a personal friend of Federico Bonomi, owner of the plane and of one of Argentina’s top textile companies, Kosiuko.
Forced to return from his holidays in the US once learning about the tragic news, Bonomi told reporters he has been left “torn apart” by the accident.
