A private jet plane crashed and caught fire in the United States, but all 21 people on board miraculously managed to escape safely.
According to foreign media such as Reuters on the 19th local time, a ‘McDonnell Douglas-87’ plane crashed into a fence outside the runway during takeoff at an airport near Houston, Texas, USA.
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said the plane crashed into a fence after failing to gain altitude at the end of the runway, flew up to 500 feet, and crashed into a field north of the airport.
The plane had 18 passengers and 3 crew members on board, which almost led to a disaster, but they managed to escape.
One of the passengers who survived was a 10-year-old child, CNN reported.
