Transcript for Deadly plane crash in India kills at least 17
Now to a deadly plane crash in India. Investigators are looking into what caused the plane to overshoot the runway killing at least 17 people. ABC's transportation correspondent gio Benitez is at Newark liberty international airport with the latest in that alarming video. Good morning to you. Reporter: Whit, good morning to you. No doubt at it, investigators will be looking closely at the weather. Visibility was very poor. And as you're about to see, that runway was especially tough. This morning the dramatic images out of India. A 737 carrying 190 people overshooting the runway and crashing. The innings tell the harrowing story. The plane split in two. At least 17 killed including both pilots. Dozens of others rushed to the hospital. In this image you can see the inside of the plane mangled. The 737 completely ripped open. But even with so much damage, no fire. When this aircraft touched down it was at the end of a very long flight from dubai. There wasn't a lot of fuel on board. This meant that there wasn't a fire which probably saved countless lives. Reporter: When this plane flew into India, it hit torrential rains. After circling the airport, the pilot finally decided to land. This runway is called a table top, a gorge on each end, making it an incredible difficult landing, especially so in rough weather. Incredibly, back in 2010 the airline had a similar accident, a pilot overshot another runway in mangalore, India. 158 passengers were killed. India authorities are cited this airport as having too much rubber build up on the runway. When the runway is wet, it makes it extra slick, extra hard to stop. They'll want to know if that was a factor in tonight's mishap. Reporter: Local officials there this morning say that both block boxes have been recovered at that crash site. At least two investigative teams are there right now trying to figure out what happened here. Eva. A lot of questions. Gio Benitez for us, thank you.
