All Passengers Survive Plane Crash in Mexico

All Passengers Survive Plane Crash in Mexico”

The head of Mexico's civil aviation agency, Mr Luis Gerardo Fonseca, said it could take months to know the cause of the accident, adding that the plane's voice and data recorders would be recovered once rescue efforts were completed. "We skidded and hit a second time and you saw the flames.You're like 'This might be bad'".

The state civil defense office published photos of the plane lying on its belly and in flames. "I remembered the protocol of putting my chest over my knees and my daughter did as well", she said.

Aeroméxico flight AM2431 was flying from Guadalupe Victoria International Airport to Mexico City. The plane caught fire soon after the crash. We were able to get out.

As the plane was rolling down the runway, Sanchez noticed the rain, hail and intense winds pick up, he said, and he wondered if the pilot would stop the takeoff. "We're focused on dealing with the situation and are doing everything necessary to assist the families of our passengers and crew during this hard time", the airline said.

The Governor of Durango said there were no deaths, in a translation of a tweet, and said emergency services were working with the airport to help the injured.

"Yes, we took off but there was a lot of rain", she said, adding that she believed the pilot had tried to slow down the plane after it made impact with the ground.

Officials said the impact ripped both engines off the Embraer 190 jetliner, and fires immediately broke out in the wings.

Dramatic images taken at the scene show thick black smoke billowing from a badly damaged plane surrounded by firefighters.

Durango's governor said the plane was hit by a gust of wind as it left the runway, causing the plane to lose speed and hit the ground on its left wing.

The spokesperson said about 85 of the 101 people on board suffered injuries, but they do not have burns.

About 49 people were hospitalized with injuries.

"They treated the people who were the worst first and afterwards treated everyone the way they needed to".

Aeromexico has operated the 10-year-old aircraft since 2014, according to the airline. The fire appears to be under control, Aispuro Torres told reporters.

According to reports, Mexico's transport minister said 97 passengers and four crew members were on the flight. Aeromexico said 64 people have been released from hospitals.

He said the jetliner had been sent for maintenance in February and the crew was well-rested, having started their work day in Durango.
