Bodies of All 10 Uruguay Plane Crash Victims Located

MONTEVIDEO – The dead bodies of all 10 occupants of a small chartered plane that crashed in southeastern Uruguay have been found, officials told Efe.

The bodies, badly burned in a fire that erupted when the plane crashed into a lagoon, were photographed to register their position and then removed from the wreckage for identification by experts.

“It has been difficult to recognize some bodies and the judge ordered a thorough autopsy based on DNA analysis, and therefore identifying them is going to take several hours,” the Maldonado provincial government said.

Nine Argentines and a Portuguese woman died in Thursday night’s crash, which occurred shortly after the Buenos Aires-bound plane took off from the airport serving the resort city of Punta del Este.

The passengers worked for an Argentine company and were part of the management team for a planned convention center in Punta del Este, Uruguay’s main tourist destination.

Arrangements are currently being made to receive the victims’ family members.
