A twin-engine plane crashed today (July 23, 2014) near a southern port city in Taiwan in stormy weather and it is feared that as many as 47 aboard may have died, it is being reported by Associated Press.

Media sources are quoting Taiwanese Transport Minister Yeh Kuang-shin as saying that 58 people were aboard the turboprop ATR-72 flight when it tried to make a second attempt to land in heavy rain. Reports indicate that it crashed in a village near the airport and it is feared people on the ground also may have been involved in yet another air tragedy.
