Another tragic plane crash has occurred, this time off the coast of Taiwan.

TransAsia Flight GE222 was attempting to make an emergency landing when it crashed in the Penghu Island city of Magong. 51 or the 58 passengers and crew members were killed.

Pilots in the plane were reportedly trying to take the aircraft down safely due to bad weather caused by Typhoon Matmo, which slammed into the Asian nation on Wednesday. Civil aviation chief Shen Chi spoke about the crash today saying:

"The control tower lost contact with the aircraft soon after they requested a go-around (second attempt to land).”

Initial reports said the plane crashed into a residential building. We are hoping that the death toll does not climb any further as authorities continue their investigation at the scene.

Our thoughts are with the families who lost loved ones in this, the second deadly air disaster in less than a week.
