Brazil: 14 die as plane crashes in Barcelos

| @indiablooms | 17 Sep 2023, 02:23 pm

At least 14 tourists have died after a plane carrying them crashed in Brazil's Barcelos city.

The plane was carrying 12 tourists, plus a pilot and co-pilot, CNN Brasil reports.

No survivors were found after the mishap.

The identities of the deceased people are not known so far.

"They were all tourists who were going on a fishing trip," Amazonas governor Wilson Lima told a press conference as quoted by Xinhua, adding that initial information showed all the tourists were Brazilian.

It was reported that the pilot had trouble finding the runway for landing in Barcelos, a sport fishing destination.

The Manaus Aerotaxi airline, owner of the crashed Embraer EMB 110 Bandeirante, a Brazilian twin-turboprop light transport aircraft, confirmed the accident in a social media statement.

According to Barcelos mayor Edson Mendes, Civil Defence teams found 14 bodies, which included 12 passengers, the pilot, and the co-pilot.
