Aeromexico plane carrying 101 people crashes in northern Mexico

According to Durango State officials, the plane came down in a field near the airport for the state capital shortly after takeoff.

There are no deaths from the accident involving an Aeromexico plane on Tuesday, according to the governor of the state of Durango, José R. Aispuro.

Our Lady of Guadalupe vice rector Fr. Manuel Padilla spoke to Sanchez on the phone after the crash.

Soon after the accident, Governor Jose Rosas Aispuro wrote on Twitter that there were no official figures on deaths or injuries. He says that allowed escape slides to activate so all passengers and crew could escape before the plane caught fire Tuesday afternoon. The state's Secretariat of Health confirmed that at least 18 people were taken to a local hospital, where there was no word on their conditions. "[We] shouldn't have been flying, bro", passenger Juan Rivera told ABC News.

"Somebody literally pushed her back so they could get through", Rivera added. That happened like three times, bro.

"As we were taking off ... we ended hitting a hailstorm that caused a lot of turbulence". "We were able to get out, and my respects to the crew".

Civil defence spokesperson Alejandro Cardoza said a fire which started after the crash was put out, and there were no burn victims.

Aispuro said 49 people had been hospitalized.

"The pilot had to execute a manoeuvre correctly and then we hit the storm at its peak while we were going up, and not while we were up in the air", he said.

The plane was taking off when it tried to abort the takeoff due to bad weather, but it was too late, Aispuro Torres told reporters.

The passengers walked back across the muddy field to the end of runway and waited there for emergency vehicles. Weather reports showed scattered storms in the area at the time of the accident.

"I have instructed the @ SEDENAmx, @ PcSegob and @ SCT_mx to collaborate in the care of the aerial accident that occurred in Durango".

There were 97 passengers and four crew members on board, with 85 people reportedly injured. Earlier tallies of those aboard did not include two minors. "The plane started skidding and started shaking really, really violently, just shaking up and down, left and right and the next thing I know, the flight attendant, her first reaction was to open the door in the front", Rivera said.

The plane's pilot, Captain Carlos Meyran, suffered the most serious injury: a lesion that required surgery.

Dramatic video has emerged from inside a passenger plane which crashed just after take-off in Mexico.
