Two adopted Ethiopian children and their parents die in Australia plane crash

Stuart Sceney, wife Karmi and daughters Mekdes and Kal-kidan, aged 12 and 15.
Three bodies recovered from a plane that crashed with four family members on board in the Northern Territory last week have been formally identified.
The Coroner says they are the bodies of Stuart Sceney, 45, and two of his daughters, Mekdes and Kal-kidan, aged 12 and 15.

The body of their mother, Carmelita (Karmi) Sceney, 53, has not been recovered but the Coroner says evidence indicates she has died.
The family members died when their light aircraft crashed in bad weather after leaving the remote Bullo River cattle station en route to Darwin last Monday.
The deaths are the subject of police and coronial investigations being done in conjunction with the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.
