In a heart-wrenching incident, a plane crash in Brazil’s northern Amazon state has claimed the lives of 14 individuals. The aircraft, carrying 12 tourists along with a pilot and co-pilot, met with a devastating fate in the Barcelos province, located approximately 400 kilometers from the state capital, Manaus.

The passengers were en route to their destination for a recreational fishing expedition when the tragedy unfolded, reportedly due to adverse weather conditions, including heavy rain during landing.
