Pakistani passenger plane crashes near Karachi

When the chief minister said "Murad is here", the survivor replied "Thank you so much".

Dr. Semi Jamal, spokesperson for the Jinnah Hospital in Karachi, said it had received five bodies and six injured people after the crash, although he did not confirm how they sustained their injuries.

An eyewitness named Irfan told local media that he was at the roof of his house when he saw the plane coming down speedily without any engine sound and it crashed at some houses in a couple of seconds.

Science Minister Fawad Ahmed Chaudhry said this year has been a "catastrophe - just survival is so hard", with the pandemic and now the tragedy of the plane crash. National television aired images showing clouds of black smoke billowing from the site where the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane crashed.

The reason for this latest incident will not become clear until an official investigation takes place, although early reports indicate the pilot had reported a problem with the plane's landing gear as it came in to land at Karachi.

A transmission of the pilot's final exchange with air traffic control, posted on the website LiveATC.net, indicated he had failed to land and was circling around to make another attempt.

Pakistan has a chequered aviation safety record, including a number of airliner crashes. "It is a very tragic incident", said the state carrier's spokesman, Abdullah H. Khan.

He has encouraged armed protests against the restrictions, tweeted "LIBERATE MICHIGAN" and criticized Whitmer (D) directly. In a worst-case scenario, COVID-19 's virus curve could mimic the deadliest pandemic in American history, the Spanish Flu.

An Airbus A320 of the Pakistan International Airlines descends dangerously close to the houses in a densely populated residential area of Karachi, less than a kilometer from the airport where it was trying to land, and hits one of the buildings, tail first.

Several cars were on fire, footage showed.

"We don't know yet whether he gave any reason at the time of the Mayday call".

The airline's chairman resigned in late 2016, less than a week after the crash of an ATR-42 aircraft killed 47 people. The plane was reportedly carrying 99 passengers and eight crew from the airlines, with a total of 107 people.

The turn of events was grieved by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.

He said he is in touch with PIA Ceo Arshad Malik who is on his way to Karachi, adding "this is the priority right now". Immediate inquiry will be instituted. "Awful tragedy, my prayers with all families".
