Kuala Lumpur: Two people were seriously injured and a third suffered minor injuries after a small private plane crashed in Malaysia, police said on Saturday.
The plane, a Cessna 172 believed to be used by a local flying club, had three adults on board when it crashed late Friday in a forest area just north of the capital Kuala Lumpur, local police chief Abdul Rahim Abdullah told a news agency.
"We were alerted of the crash late Friday and immediately launched a search and rescue operation," he said.

"We found the three men early today" with local assistance, Abdul Rahim added.

All three crash victims have been admitted into a public hospital after a two-hour journey out of the jungle.

Abdul Rahim said cause of the crash was being investigated.
