First bodies recovered from Brazil plane crash

2 October 2006

Rescuers recovered the first two bodies from the wreckage of a crashed Brazilian passenger plane in the Amazon jungle on Sunday and reported that none of the 155 people on board had survived, the Brazilian Airforce said.

The crash of the brand-new Boeing 737-800 belonging to low-cost airline Gol is Brazil’s worst aviation disaster.

Search and rescue teams had to rappel down from helicopters while others hacked their way through thick jungle to reach the wreckage after the plane went down in remote Mato Grosso state on Friday.
