Something like 19 individuals were killed Sunday after a traveler plane accident arrived in Lake Victoria while attempting, in the midst of terrible climate, to arrive at a close by air terminal in Tanzania, the nation’s state head Kassim Majaliwa and police said.

39 travelers, including a baby, and four group individuals were on board when the little plane went down around 8:53 a.m. neighborhood time, Accuracy Air said in a proclamation.

26 individuals on board the departure from Das es Salaam were protected from the water and hospitalized.
