India plane crash survivors shared their tragedy

23 MAY 2010

Survivors of a plane crash in southern India in which 158 people were killed have told of their escape from the burning fuselage.

The Air India Express airliner crashed and burst into flames after landing yesterday.

Eight people survived from among 166 passengers and crew on board.

One survivor told the Press Trust of India he managed to escape by jumping through the gap after the plane's fuselage had been smashed open.

Meanwhile News Flash News Agency reports that British Airways and its cabin crew union met yesterday to try to avert strikes that threaten to ground many of the airline's flights.

However, the talks ended when protesters broke into the building.

BA chief executive Willie Walsh and leaders of the Unite union were expected to resume the talks today, according to the union's joint general secretary, Tony Woodley.

If the talks fail, Unite says its members will walk out tomorrow for a series of strikes totalling 15 days.
