A Cambridge University student broke open a door of a plane and jumped to her death after overpowering a fellow passenger while mid-air, it is claimed.
Alana Cutland, 19, fell from a Cessna light aircraft as she travelled back from a remote lodge where she was studying crabs as part of her natural science degree.
The tragic incident happened 15 minutes after the plane took off from the remote Analalava region in northern Madagascar on July 25.
Alana is understood to have fought off British tourist Ruth Johnson before plunging 3,600 feet into the Madagascar savanna below, The Sun reported.
The pilot also grappled onto Alana's leg and manoeuvred the plane from side to side in a desperate bid to prevent her from flinging herself from the tiny aircraft.
Both eventually lost grip of Alana after becoming "exhausted" in the life and death struggle.
Authorities have launched a major operation to locate her whereabouts, but have not yet been able to recover her body.
Police officers investigating her death have recreated events on board the fateful flight after taking statements from Ms Johnson and the pilot.
Local police chief Sinola Nomenjahary said: “The Cessna C168 aircraft was taking off from Anjajavy with three people aboard, including Ms Johnson, Alana and the pilot.
A pilot and a fellow British passengers reportedly battled in vain to keep Milton Keynes teenager Alana Cutland plunging from the small aircraft
