Aeromexico plane carrying 101 people crashes in northern Mexico

Dramatic new accounts from some of the 103 people who survived a plane crash in Durango, Mexico are giving insight into why it may have gone down.

Flight AM2431 was on a domestic flight from Durango to Mexico City when the crash happened.

Investigators have located the black boxes of the jet that was flying from Guadalupe Victoria International Airport in Durango to Mexico City when it crashed in stormy weather about 4 p.m. Mexico time. He says that allowed escape slides to activate so all passengers and crew could escape before the plane caught fire Tuesday afternoon. The civil protection agency said 37 people were hospitalised, while the state health department said two passengers were in a critical condition.

The civil defence office of Durango state said the plane landed in a field near the airport for the state capital.

Aispuro Torres told reporters the plane was attempting to abort takeoff due to bad weather, but was unable to and crashed at the end of the runway.

The plane took off during a heavy hailstorm before being forced to attempt an emergency landing.

According to Rosas, the passengers helped each other quickly evacuate the aircraft through the openings in the cabin caused by the accident.

"You start gaining speed and as soon as you start taking off all of the sudden the plane starts struggling and it's getting hit with hail", said Herrera, who was visiting the city of Durango for the baptism of his cousin's baby.

The plane was carrying 97 passengers and four crew.
