The plane crashed on the runway of the Halifax International Airport early Sunday, but no major injuries were reported. At least 23 people have been sent to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. AC624 had 132 passengers and five crew members on board at the time of the crash.
It’s believed the plane slammed into a power line, likely leading to the crash and a mass power outage at the airport. A direct link between the power outage and the crash have not been confirmed by airport officials. The airport has been shut down and all flights have been cancelled.
