Plane Crashes in Thailand

The plane was carrying 123 passangers and seven flight attendents. At least 88 people died.

The plane was trying to land in stormy weather when it skidded off the run way, hit a low retaining wall and split in two.

The plane started filling with smoke and fires broke out, said Mildred Furlong, 23, a waitress from British Columbia, Canada. A passenger in front of her caught fire, while one in the back kicked out a plane window.

79 of the passangers were foreign and 44 were Thai. They were traveling from Bangkok to Phuket.
