TransAsia Airways ATR 72 has crash landed in Taipei. The video shows the aircraft’s crash. The ATR-72 turboprop aircraft with 58 onboard was flying from Taipei to the offshore island of Kinmen when it crashed into the Keelung River after apparently ramming into a highway viaduct. Taiwan’s United Daily News said about 10 people have been sent to hospital in New Taipei City, which encircles Taipei, and more than 40 are still awaiting rescue.
