Taiwan plane that crashed after take off
A Taiwan plane carrying mostly Chinese tourists has crashed into a river within the city killing 31 people and injuring some others. The plane was said to have lost power and eventually crashing into the river. The plane was just delivered to its owners just last years, so it is surprise why it lost power. Investigation is still ongoing on the ill-fated craft. 

By some miracle, a toddler was rescued from the wreckage.

According to a report, "The ATR-72 turbo-prop plane had just taken off from Taipei Songshan Airport and was heading to the Kinmen islands, just off the coast of the south-eastern Chinese city of Xiamen".

Again, this calls for question: why is there, it seems, increase in number of plane crashes in the Asian continent lately?
