MADRID, Spain (CNN) -- Passengers said they saw flames and then heard an explosion moments before a Spanair jet crashed on takeoff Wednesday at Madrid's Barajas Airport, killing 153 people, according to local media.
There were 19 survivors, including two infants, Development Minister Magdalena Alvarez told CNN+ eight hours after the Spanair jet carrying 172 people crashed.The 19 were being treated at a hospital, CNN's sister station reported. The severity of the injuries varies, but many of the injured have been treated for burns, Spanish Red Cross spokeswoman Olivia Acosa said.
Spanair Flight JK5022 was bound for Las Palmas in the Canary Islands.
Local officials said one of the engines caught fire. The aircraft, an MD-82, has two jet engines, both of which are at the rear.
The burning plane came to rest in a gully about 2:45 p.m. (8:45 a.m. ET).
The crash sent up a plume of smoke visible from several kilometers away. At the time of the crash, weather conditions were hot and clear.
A survivor told Spain's ABC newspaper that she and other passengers heard an explosion as the plane was taking off.
"She said they could see the fire, ... and then it was not even a minute or so they heard [something] blow up," reporter Carlota Fomina said. "They were about 200 meters [660 feet] in the air, and then they were landing but not crashing. They were landing, like, little by little; it was not like they [fell] down suddenly."
... semalam tadinya cuma melaporkan 19 orang meninggal gak taunya 153 orang meninggal. Semoga semua keluarga korban diberikan kekuatan.
seremnya, mo di Indonesia ato diluar banyak kejadian mengerikan begini. Padahal hidup sekarang ga bisa lepas dari pesawat terbang. Jadi kumat deh kayaknya phobia naik pesawatku, masih ingat jelas saat naik Garuda terperangkap badai dan pesawat sempat oleng kanan kiri dengan dahsyatnya. Saat itu yang terdengar hanya suara doa bersahutan. Terpikir di otak langsung bagaimana kalo jatuh...
Moga kejadian buruk ini segera berakhir... pesawat yang akan digunakan bener2 ada pengecekan yang layak... jd penumpang tidak dirugikan
