Do the wreckage parts come from the accident machine? Investigations are now being carried out in Latvia.

Riga – Latvian rescue workers may have found more remains of the crashed machine after the mysterious crash of a plane in the Baltic Sea. The parts were found about 200 meters from the original search location at a depth of about 60 meters, the head of the Latvian Sea Rescue Coordination Center Peteris Subbota said on television on Wednesday.

According to Subbota, it should now be clarified by further analyzes whether it is actually the aircraft you are looking for. The remains are relatively small, which is why lifting them with cranes should not be a problem. However, the depth at which the parts lie could make the work more difficult.

No hope for survivors

The plane flew over the Baltic Sea on Sunday on its way from Spain to Cologne. There it crashed into the sea west of the Latvian port of Ventspils. Communication with the Cessna 551 with four people on board had been interrupted for a long time before the crash. According to the Latvian authorities, there is no longer any hope of survivors.

The identity of the passengers has not yet been officially confirmed. The systems engineering company Griesemann from Wesseling near Cologne had announced that the four missing persons were the company founder Peter Griesemann, two family members and one other person. The news of the possible death of Griesemann, who is also active as a carnival participant, triggered sadness and horror in Cologne. dpa
