Russian plane crash killing all onboard including a 5- year-old girl

A Russian plane crashed on Sunday afternoon killing all onboard. Antonov An-148 was flying from Moscow's Domodedovo airport  to Orenburg region when the plane suddenly broke up mid-air killing all 65 passengers and 6 crew members onboard.

A five-year-old girl Nadezhda Krasova and her mom Oksana Krasova, were amongst the passengers who lost their lives on the ill-fated plane which crashed just minutes after it took off.

An eyewitness called Alexey narrated what he saw.

I heard a noise like a roar... it was quite unusual, Alexey said. 'You know, it sounds very strange when no one is around, when you hear such an unusual roar... I put on my shoes and rushed outside.'And I saw…an explosion. So big, there was such a cloud.'Mushroom-shaped, like a nuclear explosion in miniature. The fragments were flying, burning.'One of them was flew right onto me.' 
 The cause of the crash is yet to be ascertained. Russian officials say the bodies of the passengers are unrecognisable. The authorities are preparing DNA tests for grieving relatives in order to be able to match the mangled remains of the victims.
