Pakistan’s PIA aircraft with 107 passengers on board crashes in Karachi

Casualties from the crash site of a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane on Friday (May 22) were sent to the nearby Jinnah hospital as dead bodies and those wounded were seen stretchered off from the residential area where the crash occurred.

Ambulances transported out a number of bodies from the scene of the crash with security forces and other rescue services also arriving on site.

Seemin Jamali, a doctor at nearby Jinnah Hospital, confirmed to Reuters there were at least five corpses from the crash.

The pilot of the jet sent a Mayday and told controllers the aircraft had lost power from both its engines on its second attempt to land, according to a recording posted on monitoring website liveatc.net.
