Family tragedy in plane crash

Plane crash victims all members of a family


The six people who were killed in the plane crash at Boana in Morobe province last week (body bags and wrecked plane pictured) were all members of a family, The National reports.

The dead were a mother, her three children and two grandchildren.

They were on their way home from Port Moresby, via Lae, when they perished in the fatal crash of the light aircraft owned by Kiunga Aviation last Wednesday morning.

Bodies of the dead are still at the morgue at Angau Memorial Hospital awaiting a coroner’s inquest.

The mother is a first cousin of Morobe Governor Luther Wenge.

She was identified as Dambi Kindik, 45; her daughters Julie Agasabu, 20, and Jacinta Naio, 20; son Jerry Kindik, 10; and grandchildren Raymond Zalingan, seven, and Rolina Agasambu, 11 months.

Baby Rolina is the daughter of Julie.

Jacinta was a first-year electronics student at Badili Vocational Centre, Jerry in Grade Seven at Gerehu Primary School, and Raymond in elementary at St Paul’s, all in Port Moresby.

Mr Wenge said Mrs Kindik and her family were traveling home to Baindoang to erect the headstone for her husband Pomas Kindik’s grave.

Mr Kindik had passed away in 2008.

All their bodies were severely charred, according to Dr Kobby Bomario of Angau Memorial Hospital.
