Chuuk, Micronesia


Passengers are evacuated from an Air Niugini plane that crashed into the sea on its approach to Chuuk international airport in the Federated States of Micronesia. All passengers were reportedly rescued safely from the partially submerged Boeing 737-800, after local fishers took their boats out to the crash site almost immediately. Locals reported that broken bones were among the passenger injuries after the flight came in ‘very low’ for its landing, and ended up in the water.
