Plane Crashes onto Caribbean Island

In what has been called a "miracle," 130 of the 131 people aboard a Boeing 737 survived a crash that saw the plane broken into three pieces as it crash-landed on a Colombian island in the Caribbean early this morning. Amazingly, only one person was killed in this horrifying plane accident. At this time, it is believed the plane was hit by lightning when it crashed around 1:49 a.m. on San Andres Island, a resort island approximately 120 miles east of Nicaragua. A sixty-five-year-old passenger did not survive the crash landing. Five people were reported injured.

According to the commander of the Caribbean Air Group, the skill of the pilot kept the plane from colliding with the airport. The runway on the airport has been closed because parts of the plane are still scattered across it as the investigation continues.
