Lewis Tonkinson and Sally Tonkinson
According to Dailymail, the couple from Alcester, Warwickshire, died in the crash but George was pulled from the wreckage alive and rushed to Southampton General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Scott Wilson, inspector at the Air Accident Investigations Branch (AAIB), told the jury that George, then six, had been able to describe the final moments before the crash on January 3, 2015.
He said: ‘We know the pilot was conscious as there was the surviving passenger, the young boy, who said so. The one bit of evidence I’m happy to give is that his dad told him to take the brace position.
‘That tells me the pilot was aware the plane was in difficulty. It tells me he was conscious at the time and was trying to avoid a crash. I believe the weather was the overriding factor in this crash.’
