There Are Survivors Aboard Brazil’s Crashed Jet, Say Authorities

Brazilian aviation authorities have confirmed that they have credible information that there are survivors aboard a plane that fell last night in the Amazon jungle.

The Boeing 737-800 belonging to Brazilian airline Gol fell with 155 people aboard, after colliding in mid-air with a lighter plane from the Brazilian Aicraft Manufacturer Embraer. 

The information on survivors is still very sketchy and there is not an estimate of how many of the 149 passengers and six flight crew may have survived. The FAB (Brazilian Force Area) has warned the Peixoto Azevedo hospital, close to the area of the accident to be ready to receive the victims. 

Célio Wilson of Oliveira, the Security Secretary of the state of Mato Grosso, informed that Indians from the Kayapó and Metutirê villages, near the area where the plane fell, said they had seen five crash survivors. Authorities in the area, however, called the information imprecise and said that it differs from reports by the Armed forces rescue team, who hasn’t spotted any survivor.

Wreckage of the Boeing were located this morning by the Brazilian military in an area on the border between the states of Mato Grosso and Pará, in northern Brazil.

According to Gol, the fallen plane’s pilot, Décio Chaves Jr., was an experienced aviator with 10,000 hours of flight. And the Boeing was brand new with only 200 hours of flight. The plane had been received from the manufacturer on September 12.
