Over 100 Die in Cuba Plane Crash

A Boeing 737 plane crashed on Friday, May 28, 2018, moments after taking off from Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport, killing over 100 of its 113 passengers and crew barely 24 hours after more than a third of its fleet were grounded over safety concerns.

Cuba’s newly sworn in president Miguel Diaz-Canel confirmed there was a ‘high number of casualties’ after the internal Cubana de Aviacion flight crashed into a yuca field near a high school, in the Santiago de las Vegas neighborhood, on Friday.  Just three survivors have been recovered so far – all in critical condition, according to Cuban media.
