Two Ukrainians perished, one heavily injured in flight accident in Bangladesh
All four people aboard were Ukrainian citizens, the country’s Embassy in India said
The Antonov An-26 transport aircraft crashed in Bangladesh, killing two people. Another passenger, critically injured, is now in the hospital.
“As of Wednesday afternoon, local rescue teams found 3 crew members of the mentioned aircraft”, reads the message at Facebook page of the Consulate Service of Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry.
Ukraine’s Embassy in India keeps an eye for the fourth passenger and closely watches over the course of investigation in the case.
Earlier this morning, the AN-26 that carried seafood departed from Cox’s Bazaar city in Bangladesh, but several minutes later crashed over the Bay of Bengal. At first, the local media reported that one of the pilots killed in accident was a Russian national. However, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry refuted this information, indicating that all four people aboard were Ukrainians.
