Honduras Plane Crash: All Passengers Pulled Alive From Wreckage of Private Jet
Five survivors were American, while a sixth was a Venezuelan national.
Six people were pulled alive from the wreckage of a private jet Tuesday after it apparently overshot a runway in Honduras and nearly broke in half.
Despite the startling photos posted online by Honduran firefighters, no one was killed in the crash.
According to reports, five of those aboard were Americans, four of whom worked for the Texas-based pawn shop company EZCORP. The fifth American was a crew member and a sixth survivor was a Venezuelan crew member.
"The company is coordinating to make sure the employees and crew are receiving proper medical attention," EZCORP said in a statement.
The Gulfstream G200 was traveling from Austin, Texas, to Toncontín International Airport in Tegucigalpa when the aircraft overshot the notoriously treacherous runway, EZCORP said.
Video from the scene showed people pulling victims out of the damaged fuselage while others sprayed the plane with fire extinguishers.
The injuries were mostly minor, with one employee and one crew member sustaining more extensive injuries, according to EZCORP.
The company said it is working to make sure the employees and crew are receiving proper medical attention.
