Aeroméxico Crash Called Miracle Of God


News Americas, MEXICO CITY, Mexico, Thurs. Aug. 2, 2018: “A Miracle Of God” is how many are referring to the fact that all 103 passengers and crew on board an Aeroméxico flight that crashed Tuesday in the capital of Mexico’s Durango state have survived.

Most of the passengers were able to walk away before it caught fire but 97 of them are injured.

State Governor José Rosas Aispuro said the plane was hit by a gust of wind which caused a sudden descent. Its left wing then touched the ground and two engines broke off.

The plane’s pilot is one of two who were seriously injured. He needed an operation on his spine but is reportedly in a stable condition. A young girl sustained burns.

Many other passengers had only “very light” injuries, officials said.

Governor Rosas said the crew were able to deploy the evacuation slides shortly after the crash, allowing those still on board to leave the plane safely before the flames spread.

In a statement, Aeroméxico said they “deeply regret” the accident, while Brazilian plane company Embraer said it had sent a team to the crash site.
