A Papua New Guinean plane has sunk in a lagoon after overshooting the runway in the Federated States of Micronesia.

All passengers were reportedly rescued safely from Air Niugini’s partially submerged Boeing 737-800, after local fishers took their boats out to the crash site almost immediately.

Locals reported broken bones are among the passenger injuries after the flight came in “very low” for its landing, and ended up in the water.

Flight 73 flies between Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia and Port Moresby, stopping in Chuuk State. (The Guardian)
