The 30 year-old Canadian journalist was killed when the plane he was travelling in crashed near Mount Kenya. Dr Anthony King, the director of the Laikipia Wildlift Forum Trust Fund, who was piloting the plane also died. The two-seater aircraft’s owner, Pixcom, said that the crash was caused by poor weather condition.

John Driftmier, 30, was shooting aerial footage for a documentary series called 'Dangerous Flights,' the Montreal-based film producer Pixcom said. The show tracks pilots who fly small private planes to various locations around the world, according to media reports.
