No Survivors Found in Wreckage of Plane That Crashed in China with 132 Aboard

HeadlineMar 22, 2022

Chinese media reports rescue crews have found no signs of survivors in the wreckage of a passenger jet that crashed Monday in the southern region of Guangxi. President Xi Jinping has ordered an investigation into how the plane fell more than 25,000 feet in just two minutes. The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board has assigned an investigator for the crash, since it involved a U.S.-made Boeing 737-800. The aircraft has an excellent safety record, unlike Boeing’s 737 MAX, which had software flaws that led to crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia three years ago that killed all 346 people aboard.
