We are all deeply feeling the loss of a friend and colleague

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It is with heavy hearts that we can confirm that our dear friend and colleague Carolina Nyberg-Steiser, 29, from Greenpeace Nordic has died in a tragic accident in the Amazon.

(Statement in Swedish below)

Carolina was traveling in a small amphibious plane that crashed while landing on the river Rio Negro near the city of Manaus, capital of the northern state of Amazonas in Brazil. There is no confirmed information on the causes of the accident. The plane crashed Tuesday at around 11.50 AM Manaus time (18.50 CEST).

Carolina was visiting our Brazil office to meet with her colleagues and learn more about the campaign to protect the Amazon. She was on a flight to see firsthand the beauty of the forest.

The four others onboard, including the pilot, all survived, sustaining light injuries.

Out of respect to Carolina’s family we are not commenting further at this time.

Carolina will be deeply missed by all of us. Our thoughts are with her family.

Det är med stor sorg vi kan bekräfta att vår nära vän och kollega Carolina Nyberg-Steiser, 29 år, från Greenpeace Norden har omkommit i en tragisk flygolycka utanför Manaus i Amazonas, Brasilien.

Carolina färdades i ett litet amfibieflygplan som kraschade vid landning på floden Rio Negro nära staden Manaus, huvudstaden i Amazonas norra delstat. Det finns ingen bekräftad information om orsakerna till olyckan. Flygplanet kraschade tisdag kl. 11.50 brasiliansk tid (18.50 CEST).

Carolina var på besök vid vårt brasilianska kontor för att träffa kollegor och lära sig mer om vår kampanj för att skydda regnskog i Amazonas. Hon skulle genomföra en flygresa över regionen för att med egna ögon bevittna naturen.

Tre övriga passagerare från Greenpeace Brasilien och piloten överlevde olyckan och vårdas på sjukhus chockade men med lättare skador.

Av respekt för Carolinas familj, och innan vi vet alla detaljer, kommenterar vi inte mer än så i nuläget.

Carolina är djupt saknad av oss alla.

Våra tankar går till hennes familj.

Patrik Eriksson is the Programme Director at Greenpeace Nordic
