It’s now known that Cardiff City footballer Emiliano Sala died of head and trunk injuries after the plane he was on crashed into the water off the Guernsey coast.
The trunk, or torso, is the core or central part of the body. This term applies both to the thoracic area (chest), abdominal area (stomach) and perineum (area between the genitals and the tail bone).
Most vital organs are housed within the trunk, including your heart, lungs, stomach and intestines.
Sala, 28, died as a result of fatal injuries to his head and trunk that he suffered when the Piper PA-46 Malibu plane he was on crashed into the water off Guernsey.
His body was recovered from the wreck, found 220ft underwater, and he was pronounced dead on Thursday 7 February.
He had been flying from Nantes to Cardiff after securing a transfer to Premier League side Cardiff City.
He was identified via finger print analysis. The body of the aircraft’s pilot, David Ibbotson, is still missing.
In an interview with Good Morning Britain, Ibboson’s wife Nora said: ‘He’s dead, we know that – but we just want him home.
