A devastating plane crash unfolded in Malaysia’s central Selangor state, resulting in a heartbreaking loss of ten lives – eight individuals on board the ill-fated aircraft and two motorists on the ground. The incident, which transpired on a bustling street, sent shockwaves through the community.

Eyewitnesses recounted the horrific scene as the Beechcraft Model 390 spiraled out of control before plummeting to the ground, bursting into flames upon impact. The crash site, near Shah Alam in Elmina, was engulfed in fire and thick smoke, leaving a trail of destruction and despair. Residents in the vicinity were startled by the explosion that accompanied the crash, a grim reminder of the fragility of life.

Local police chief, Mohamad Iqbal Ibrahim, confirmed the tragic toll, revealing that alongside the eight passengers on the plane, two unsuspecting motorists – one in a car and another on a motorcycle – lost their lives in the calamity. Among the victims was Johari Harun, a state assembly member known for his dedication to housing and the environment.

Eyewitnesses who had observed the aircraft’s erratic flight pattern recounted their shock as the plane careened downward, followed by a deafening blast. Mohamad Syahmie Mohamad Hashim, a former member of the Malaysian air force, expressed his helplessness upon witnessing the catastrophe unfold before him.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia confirmed the presence of six passengers and two flight crew members on the aircraft. Notably, there was no distress call from the plane before the tragedy struck.
