Mayor told the whole truth by tweeting
Mayor Daniel Quintero first wrote on Twitter, ‘A plane has crashed in the Belen Rosales sector. The government has put in full force to help the victims. The plane was a twin-engine Piper that was on its way from Medellin to the municipality of Pizarro in Choco. One of the two planes in Medellin indicated engine failure on takeoff but was unable to return to Olaya Herrera airport.’

The magnitude of the accident seen in the picture
According to pictures shared by emergency services, the top floor of the house where the plane hit was almost destroyed. In the photo, firefighters were seen working to extinguish the blaze amid scattered tiles and broken brick walls.
A plane crash has happened in this city before
Please tell that Medellin is located in a narrow valley surrounded by the Andes mountains. In 2016, a plane carrying Brazil’s Chapecoense football team ran out of fuel and crashed into the mountains near the same town, killing 71 of the 77 people on board, including 16 players.
