Video: Taiwan plane cartwheels into river after take-off, killing at least 16

(Reuters) – A TransAsia Airways plane with 58 passengers and crew on board cartwheeled into a river shortly after taking off from a downtown Taipei airport on Wednesday, killing at least 16 people and leaving about a dozen missing, officials said.

As many as 28 people appeared to have survived the crash after the plane lurched between buildings, clipped an overpass with its port-side wing and crashed upside down in the shallow river.
