A plane crash in the great expanse of the Amazon jungle caused the death of 14 people this past Saturday. The unfortunate event took place in the northern area of ​​the Amazon, about 250 miles northwest of Manaus, the most populous city in the Amazon.

The light passenger plane, which had taken off from Manaus, faced challenges during its landing near Barcelos, a place along the Rio Negro River. Witnesses and local media highlight the heavy rain during the plane’s landing attempt as an important factor in the accident. The crash has devastated families and friends as the plane was carrying Brazilian tourists on their way to a fishing expedition.

The governor of the state of Amazonas, Wilson Lima, took to X, a social media platform, to convey his grief: “I deeply regret the death of the 12 passengers and two crew members who were victims of the plane crash in Barcelos on Saturday. Our teams have been working since the beginning to provide the necessary support. My condolences and prayers go out to their families and friends.” Lima also noted that heavy rains typical of the region, along with possible navigational errors, may have contributed to this tragic event.

Globo television provided visual information through images showing the plane’s wreckage, with the front of the plane caught in the rainforest bushes. Quickly addressing the catastrophe, the Brazilian Air Force stated that the Accident Investigation and Prevention Center (CENIPA) has been tasked with finding out the reasons for the accident. To ensure a full understanding of the incident, a dedicated team has been dispatched from Manaus to gather information and safeguard essential evidence.
