A Two-Year-Old Boy Survives Deadly Plane Crash In Taiwan
A TransAsia GE235 passenger plane, carrying 53 passengers, clipped a highway and crashed into the Keeling River in the capital city Taipei, on Feb. 4. Sadly, only 15 passengers have reportedly been pulled from the wreckage.
Amongst them was a little two-year-old boy and four other children. So sad!
Rescue workers and medics flocked to the crash site and worked tirelessly to save the lives of everyone on board, reports the Daily Mail. In the pictures posted by the news outlet, you can see medics rushing the little boy to safety wrapped in a blanket.
So far there’s no word on the state of the four children’s parents.
These children must be beyond terrified — but their families will be more than thrilled when they hear the good news that they’ve survived this awful accident.
People Are Reportedly Still Trapped In The Wreckage
The news outlet is reporting that so far at least 25 people have died, but they fear others could still be trapped from when their plane crashed only three minutes after taking off from a Taipei airport.
“The focus of our work is to try to use cranes to lift the front part of the wreckage, which is submerged under the water and is where most of the other passengers are feared trapped,” Jun-hongWu, the Taipei Fire Department official, told reporters at the scene.
He went on to say, “At the moment, things don’t look too optimistic. Those in the front of the plane are likely to have lost their lives.”
So sad. Thankfully, not all lives were lost and they were able to save the poor, innocent children who were on board.
Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by this horrible accident.
