Two people were killed and 22 injured when an Antonov An-24 passenger plane made an emergency landing on Thursday at an airport in Russia's Buryatia region in Siberia, the area's emergency situations ministry said.
The plane carrying 48 people, including 5 crew members, overshot the runway after landing, hit a small building and caught fire, regional authorities said.
The aircraft took off from the regional capital of Ulan-Ude and flew to Nizhneangarsk, where it was forced to make an emergency landing when one of its engines failed, they said.
Video shot by a passenger from a plane window showed the aircraft coming into land on the runway before rolling into a field and then suddenly violently halting with passengers screaming onboard.
Regional authorities said a pilot and technician had been killed in the accident, but all the passengers had been safely evacuated before a fire destroyed the plane.
The flight was operated by Russian regional airline Angara, media reported.
