why we didn’t save the victims of the plane crash in Abuja
The man, who was simply identified as John, explained why it was not possible to save the victims of the airliner that crashed on Sunday.
John, who told the Daily Trust that he was one of the first to arrive at the crash site, said the victims were alive after the plane crash.
He said It took more than 30 minutes for rescuers to arrive at the scene, and it was revealed that those on the ground were trying to rescue the trapped passengers, but the smoke rising over the hapless plane prevented them from doing so.
John said that while they were trying to put out the smoke, the plane exploded and they all fled to safety.
According to him, the accident occurred 100 meters from the village of Bassa, so there are no confirmed cases of ground casualties.
The Daily Trust reports that the plane crashed just minutes after taking off from Abuja Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, killing all seven people on board.
Ibikunle Daramola, a security official, confirmed the incident, saying an investigation was ongoing.
Our correspondent at the scene reported that the black box and the recorder in the cockpit were found at about 12:00.
He also saw lifeless bodies being carried in body bags and carried in ambulances.
Working with Air Force personnel, investigators immediately began mapping aircraft body parts scattered around the crash site.
The aircraft reportedly reported an engine failure at 10:39 am and crashed on the final approach to Runway 22 in Abuja at 10:48 am.
