It is Colombian not Columbian. Common mistake, I only know about it because it deeply offends my Colombian girlfriend.

Probably ran out of fuel or a fuel system problem, being a twin and that it appears to have made a controlled-as-possible treetop landing.
For remote cross country at least the pilot should carry an EPIRB on their person, these sat-beacons are lifesavers if you survive a crash. A whistle and mirror are super cheap too.
I used to be in CAP and later ran a county SAR for the fire dpt. Stay with the aircraft or vehicle, lay out signals, start a fire and be ready to throw smoky stuff into it.
The military does it right; flame resistant nomex, comm helmets, emergency beacons and radio on all aircrew as well as survival and first aid gear.
