Hazardous effort to recover bodies from plane crash in Iran

AFP

TEHRAN: Iranian rescue teams struggled to recover bodies yesterday from the wreckage of a plane that crashed in hazardous terrain near a mountain peak two days earlier with 66 people on board, reports AFP.

“Deep and dangerous crevices in the area of the crash have made it impossible for helicopters to land,” Ghafoor Rastinrooz, director of the regional medical centre, told official news agency IRNA.

“The bodies must be transferred by hand to the foot of the mountain which will be time-consuming,” he said.

Aseman Airlines flight EP3704 disappeared from radar as it flew over the Zagros mountain range on Sunday morning, around 45 minutes after taking off from Tehran on a domestic flight.

After two days of heavy snow and fog, the weather finally cleared on Tuesday morning, allowing a helicopter crew to spot a piece of the wreckage with the company’s logo.
