The ATR 72-600 was carrying 58 passengers and crew on board. It
plunged into the river right after take-off. At least 16 have
been reported killed, with about a dozen others still unaccounted
The last communication from the plane before the crash reported
an “engine flameout,” a technical problem with either fuel supply
or combustion that leads to engine failure.
The plane missing the highway and crashing into the river
probably allowed some of those on board survive the impact.
