Update: Three people confirmed dead with many injured after plane skids off runway and breaks into pieces in Istanbul

Published

A Pegasus Airlines plane broke apart after skidding off the runway at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen International Airport on Wednesday evening, killing three people and injuring scores of other passengers, Turkey’s health minister, Fahrettin Koca, said.

The low cost carrier plane carried 177 passengers and was traveling from Izmir when it landed in difficult conditions in Istanbul as the city was lashed by strong winds and heavy rains, according to the city’s governor, Ali Yerlikaya.

For hours after the crash, Turkish officials said there had been no fatalities, even as footage from the scene showed the plane had sustained what appeared to be catastrophic damage. It was separated into three pieces, with the nose almost completely detached from the rest of the fuselage and flipped over. Early footage of the crash showed what appeared to be a fire near the rear of the plane.

After skidding off the runway, the plane “drifted” approximately 165 feet and then fell approximately 100 feet off an incline, said Yerlikaya, according to the state-run Anadolu news agency.

President Muhammadu Buhari Finally Address His Citizens Over The #EndSARS Protest

Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari has finally addressed his citizens over the #EndSARS protests.

In his strongly-worded address, Buhari has thrown shades at President Nana Akufo-Addo, Hilary Clinton, and other world leaders who dared to talk about the impasse. Well, it looks like Buhari did not need our input on the matter and the pressure for Akufo-Addo to speak was unnecessary.

SARS had reportedly been terrorising the ordinary citizens, especially the youth, and even killing some.
