One Teenager Survives
Six of the seven people aboard a Beech King Air BE200 died today
when it slammed into a building as it prepared to land at an
airport in Massachusetts.
Witnesses said a young woman simply walked out the wreckage of
the aircraft looking dazed.
The plane went down shortly after 9.30am EST, hitting a
sheet-metal shop in the north-central Massachusetts town of
Leominster, officials said. All employees in the building managed
to get out safely after the impact, which erupted into a fireball.
One of the shop's workers suffered minor injuries but was treated
and released from hospital.
The BE200 (file photo, right) left LaGuardia
Airport in New York earlier in the morning headed for
Massachusetts, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration
"Of the seven people on board, there was only one survivor," the
FAA spokesman said.
Word of the crash, which came more than a year and a half after
the September 11 hijacked plane attacks on New York and Washington,
sent jitters through financial markets, but officials were quick to
rule out terrorism.
