TransAsia Flight GE235 crashed into Taiwan’s Keelung River Wednesday morning shortly after takeoff, killing at least 31 people, South China Morning Post reported, citing Taiwan’s Central News Agency. Twelve remained missing and 15 survivors were being treated at a hospital, and civil aviation authorities ordered the island’s 22 ATR-72 aircrafts grounded for safety checks, including six owned by TransAsia. The deadly crash was the second in seven months for TransAsia, with the same plane model crashing into the offshore tourist island of Penghu in July, killing 48 people.
