Over 100 Die in Cuba Plane Crash

By  | 

Yesterday, a Boeing 737 plane crashed moments after taking off from Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport, killing over 100 of its 113 passengers and crew barely 24 hours after more than a third of its fleet were grounded over safety concerns.

Cuba’s newly sworn in president Miguel Diaz-Canel confirmed there was a ‘high number of casualties’ after the internal Cubana de Aviacion flight crashed into a yuca field near a high school, in the Santiago de las Vegas neighborhood, on Friday. Just three survivors have been recovered so far – all in critical condition, according to Cuban media.
