Taiwan: Plane craches into River

Plane Crashes Into Taiwan RiverA Taiwanese commercial flight with 53 passengers aboard clipped a bridge shortly after takeoff and crashed into a river in the island's capital of Taipei on Wednesday morning, authorities say. Taiwan's Central News Agency said at least 10 people were being taken to safety after the incident but gave no immediate information about the other passengers and crew aboard the TransAsia Airways flight. The plane was identified as a twin-engine turboprop ATR 72 with a two-pilot air crew. Its fuselage was seen half-submerged in the shallow river, with passengers and rescuers standing on the hull and swimming in the water. According to the BBC, aviation authorities say at least two people died in the crash.
