- Two-time Kenyan Olympic champion David Rudisha survived a frightening plane crash in southern Kenya — saying he was grateful there were no casualties.
- The 800-meter world record holder had taken off from a Kenyan reserve hosting the “Maasai Olympics” — a series of annual sporting competitions with Maasai youth — when the plane engine went eerily quiet, forcing an emergency landing Saturday.
- Rudisha said the plane’s pilot took control and found a clear patch to land — but one of the wings hit a tree, triggering a spin before the aircraft wound up on a rocky field in Kajiado county in southeast Kenya.
