TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Durango state Gov. Jose Aispuro said at a news conference late Tuesday that the plane skidded into a field in a horizontal position. He says that allowed escape slides to activate so all passengers and crew could escape before the plane caught fire Tuesday afternoon.
The governor says all 103 passengers and crew have been accounted for alive. He says the plane's pilot is in serious condition with burns.
