HAVANA, Cuba – A Boeing 737 plane operated by state airline Cubana crashed and exploded after taking off from Jose Marti International Airport in Havana on Friday leaving over 100 people dead, according to reports.

Local media reported that three passengers were said to have survived but are in critical condition.

Local media reported the flight from Havana to Holguin, a city in eastern Cuba, had 104 passengers and nine crew members on board.

Fox News reports that the plane lay in a farm field and appeared heavily damaged and burnt.

Government officials including President Miguel Diaz-Canel rushed to the site, along with a large number of emergency medical workers and ambulances.

“There has been an unfortunate aviation accident,” Diaz-Canal said, according to the BBC. “The news is not very promising, it seems that there is a high number of victims.”

The airliner had been leased to state airline Cubana de Aviación by the Mexican company Damojh, Cuban news agency Prensa Latina said.

Images showed a thick column of smoke rising above the crash site as fire crews and ambulances attended the scene.

Radio Havana Cuba said on Twitter that the plane came down on the “highway” between Boyeros and Havana, near the airport.

Residents of the rural area told The Associated Press that watched as some survivors were taken away in ambulances.

Video showed dark plumes of smoke billowing from the crash site. Several first responders were at the scene, including firefighters who could be seen spraying water on the smoldering remains.

The plane was rented from Blue Panorama by Cubana, which has taken many of its aging planes out of service in recent months due to mechanical problems.

Cubana is known by locals for consistently having delays and cancellations, which the airline attributes to a lack of airplanes and parts because of the American trade embargo on Cuba.

Friday’s crash marked the third major deadly accident for Cuba since 2010.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved.

GOD BLESS.
