A baby has miraculously survived a horror plane crash that killed his parents, after being found in the arms of his heroic mother.

The plane crashed in Ubate, Colombia on Tuesday, and the accident claimed the lives of Mayerly Diaz Rojas, her husband Fabio Grandas and their son's nanny, Nuris Maza.

Mr Grandas, who was piloting the plan, was a well-known doctor in the Colombian capital of Bogota.

Rescuers found Ms Rojas still cradling her baby after dying in the crash, having used her body to shield the infant.


In a statement, the Colombian Civil Aviation Authority expressed their "solidarity with the families of the victims".

They added that "a baby, who was also travelling in the aeroplane, is being attended at this time in an assistance centre".
