On Tuesday, an Aeromexico Embraer 190 aircraft crashed while taking off from the Guadalupe Victoria Airport in Durango. The aircraft unsuccessfully tried to abort the takeoff due to bad weather.
Aeromexico said that all of the 103 people aboard the airplane — four crew members and 99 passengers — survived the crash. However, all have been treated in local hospitals and two are in critical condition, according to media reports.
