No one died after Miami Boeing 737 crashed into St. Johns River with 143 persons on board

At Jacksonsville Airport, a charter plane carrying 143 passengers and crew skidded off the runway and crashed into St. Johns River.

The plane, Miami Boeing 737, had returned from Guantanamo Bay and was trying to land at Jacksonville airport immediately after 9:30 pm on Friday. The landing did not happen as planned and as a result the plane crashed into the nearby river.

The passengers on board were military officers. They were lucky, the plane did not get submerged into the river. The emergency responders rushed into the scene and were successful in rescuing all the 143 passengers on board.

Out the 143 persons, seven (7) were crew members. Only two crew members served minor injuries. They received relevant treatment on the spot.

Capt Michael Connor said that the fact that no one died was a miracle. He further added that the plane crews started working towards managing jet fuel spills if any immediately after all people were evacuated.

On Friday, Mayor Lenny Curry visited the accident site at St. Johns River in Jacksonville to confirm the unfortunate event.

As at the time of going to press, it was not clearly how long it will take to remove the plane from the river.

To God be the glory.
