37 SURVIVE PASSENGER JET CRASH

A miraculous passenger jet crash rocked the troubled South Sudan town of Wau, after all the 40 people on board escaped unhurt. The Passenger jet crash-landed at a Government airport on Monday after living the Capital Juba.

The airlines Manager Gabriel Ngang confirmed the incident saying all the passengers were out of danger. According to the information minister for the Juba based government, most of the passengers were driven off to the near by hospital, but were shortly discharged.

However, the government could not account for at least eight people who were reportedly on the plane, but could not be traced. The Airport engineer Paul Charles, said the pilot was forced to crash land the aircraft due to bad weather.

He says there was bad visibility, blocking the pilot’s sight at the run-way. He said some passengers were pulled out, while others were pulled out after they were stuck in the wreckage.

The plane was burnt, save for the back part which was not burnt. Engineer Paul Charles said.

Police and airport officials were seen struggling to put out the fire, although with little success. In November 2015, 36 people died in a Russian Antinov craft that crashed shortly after takeoff from Juba airport
