No deaths, 49 hospitalized in North Mexico Aeromexico plane crash

The pilot and one other person were in serious but stable condition. Earlier, a total of 49 people had been taken to hospitals, and officials said most had minor injuries.

Ambulances lined up at the accident site to ferry the injured to hospitals. Some passengers got out under their power, and some even wandered back to the nearby airport of Durango city to seek out relatives.

Witnesses differed on whether the plane either fell shortly after takeoff or ran off the runway without really gaining altitude. But they agreed the plane was trying to take off during a storm, with some describing marble-sized hail.

Aeromexico said the flight was AM2431 from Durango to Mexico City.

Operations were suspended at Guadalupe Victoria airport after the crash.
