Video: 41 people killed after plane erupts in flames in emergency landing at Russian airport
Thirty-seven passengers have been confirmed alive. Five people have been hospitalized, according to Aeroflot airlines.
Russia’s Investigative Committee, the equivalent of the FBI, has confirmed death toll and said two children were among those killed.
There were 73 passengers and 5 crew members on board the Sukhoi Superjet 100 plane, operated by the Russian airline Aeroflot. It took off from Moscow bound for the northern city of Murmansk, but was forced to turn back due to unspecified “technical reasons,” according to a statement from the airline, which added that the engine caught fire.
