At least 19 killed and 26 rescued after the Precision Air flight plunged into Lake Victoria while attempting to land during stormy weather.

The death toll from Sunday’s plane crash in Lake Victoria in Tanzania has jumped to 19, according to the country’s Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa.

The plane, which departed from the commercial capital, Dar es Salaam, crashed while attempting to land during stormy weather.

Local authorities and the airline earlier said that 26 survivors out of the 43 people on board flight PW 494 had been pulled to safety and taken to hospital in Bukoba, a lakeside city in the Kagera region.
