152 killed in plane crash in Pakistan
Pakistan Air jet carrying 152 passengers was crashed into the hills surrounding Pakistan's capital on Wednesday morning Jul 28 said officials.
Rescue workers tried best to reach the spot amidst heavy rain and difficult roads.
The cause of the crash is yet to confirm, said Pervez George, a civil aviation official. He also said the plane was flying from Karachi to Islamabad and was trying to land during difficult weather.
"The plane was about to land at the Islamabad airport when it lost contact with the control tower, and later we learned that the plane had crashed," George said.
The rescuers have gone to the spot with the forest departments and found some wreckage and bodies. The army has been sent with special troops to the area to help out along with helicopters.
Pakistani news channels showed what appeared to be wreckage of the plane as a helicopter hovered above the heavily forested hills to assess the situation. Fire was visible and smoke was blowing up from the scene.
Unfortunately the Air blue could not be reached after the immediate crash. The report says none of them on board survived.
