David Rudisha, a two-time Olympic champion and holder of the 800-meter world record, is praised for his accomplishments both on and off the track.

However, the athlete has narrowly avoided death after surviving two near-fatal accidents in the previous three years.

In a recent mishap the 800m world record holder and his teammates were flying from Kimana Wildlife Sanctuary to Nairobi with Kenya Masters Athletics chairman Stephen Ole Marai when their light aircraft crashed-landed in the Imbirikana region of Amboseli.

On Saturday, December 10 David Rudisha one of Kenya most well-known athletes left Kimana Wildlife Sanctuary after serving as the guest of honor at the annual Maasai Olympics competition.

It was a terrifying experience where you prayed to God while holding your heart in your hand. To keep the jet stable and afloat for so long the pilot performed an amazing job Rudisha told Nation.

The athlete described the incident describing how the engine malfunctioned immediately after the plane took off. The pilot decided to fly the plane above the woods as a result.

The plane engine abruptly shut down about seven or eight minutes into the flight said Rudisha.
