Passenger Jet Crashes in Southern Thailand, At Least 87 Dead


Thai officials say a plane crash on the southern resort island of Phuket has killed at least 87 people.

The plane, operated by Thai budget airline One-Two-Go, crashed while landing in heavy rain at the Phuket airport Sunday.

The jet (a McDonnell Douglas MD-82) skidded off the runway, split apart and caught fire.

The plane had taken off from the Thai capital, Bangkok with 123 passengers and seven crew members. Many of the passengers were European tourists.

About 40 people survived the crash and were taken to hospitals. At least two people were treated and then released. Some survivors said they had seen people on fire as they escaped from the burning plane.

The plane crash is Thailand's deadliest in almost a decade. In 1998, 101 people died when a Thai Airways jet went down south of Bangkok.
