Default Another Airbus goes down, crashes into ocean

A Yemeni airliner with 150 people on board has crashed in the Comoros archipelago in the Indian Ocean, officials say.

"We don't know if there are any survivors among the 150 people on the plane," a senior government official told Reuters news agency.

The Airbus A310 was en route from Yemen's capital Sanaa to Moroni, the capital of Comoros, and most of the passengers were Comoran, an official at Sanaa's international airport said. Moroni is about 2,900 km (1,800 miles) south of Yemen, off the east coast of Africa.

Prayers to the victims/families. Airbus indeed is in trouble if they don't find new safety improvements.

Child rescued from crash site alive

CAIRO (AP) — A Comoros police official says a child has been rescued from the sea in the Airbus 310 crash off the Indian Ocean island.

Immigrations officer with the Comoros operations, Rachida Abdullah, says a toddler was rescued from the crash site Tuesday.

Abdullah told The Associated Press that three bodies have also been retrieved, along with debris from the plane, but that no other survivors have been recovered so far.

Update - survivor was 14y/o girl - confirmed.


A 14-year-old girl was found alive in the sea, Comoros Communications Minister Abdourahim Said Bakar said. Earlier reports had said the rescued child was five.

The Paris airports authority said 66 French nationals were aboard the plane, which was flying the final leg of a trip from Paris and Marseille to Comoros via Yemen.

A Yemeni aviation official said there were also nationals from Canada, Comoros, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Morocco, the Palestinian territories, the Philippines and Yemen on the plane.

It is the second Airbus to plunge into the sea this month. An Air France Airbus A330-200 crashed into the Atlantic Ocean killing 228 people on board on June 1. A preliminary report on that crash is due on Thursday.

Gawd - this is so creepy - 2 Airbus crashes into oceans in a 2 week time span.

Praise the Lord that a child's life was spared out of this horrific tragedy.
