At least two men survived a fatal plane crash in Pakistan



Investigators fight through the wreck at the site of one fatal plane crash in Pakistan which occurred early on Friday morning. An Airbus jet with nearly 100 people aboard crashed in a residential area in the city of Karachi – and at least two survived.

It was a horror scene when Airbus, caught on the security camera, crashed in the neighborhood. Rescuers found bank president Zafar Masood in the wreck. Masood only got cracks.

The second passenger, Muhammad Zubair, also survived. “The aircraft caught fire … I loosened my seatbelt and saw light,”

; he said from his hospital bed.

Aviation authorities say the A320 aircraft, with 98 people, took off from Lahore and was about to land in Karachi when it dropped both engines.

The country had only resumed domestic flights after weeks of the coronavirus lock. Prime Minister Imran Khan promises a “full investigation.”
