Many declared injured as Boeing 737 crash

21 people were reportedly declared injured on friday when a Boeing 737 plane carrying 143 passengers missed its runway into a shallow river in Jacksonville, Florida.

The unfortunate occurrence took place while it was endeavoring to land at an army base amid a tempest.

The incident had no reports of deaths or serious wounds. However, 21 people were taken to the emergency clinic for minor wounds according to BBC reports.

“The plane, a chartered Boeing 737-800 arrived from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay in Cuba with 136 passengers and seven crew members, but it crashed into the St Johns River at the end of the runway at Naval Air Station Jacksonville at about 9:40 pm local time,

“The plane was not submerged. Every person is alive and accounted for.” – The Sheriff’s Office of Jacksonville gave an update on the incident through twitter.

The sheriff’s also posted two photos showing the plane, bearing the logo of Miami Air International, resting in a shallow water without harm together with his tweet.

Miami Air International is a contracted carrier working an armada of the Boeing 737-800, not the same as the 737 MAX 8 airplane that has been grounded following two deadly crashes involving that plane.

NYSC gives Prospective Corps Members travelling tips

Published

NYSC News

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has revealed some travelling tips to Prospective Corps Members (PCM) who will be travelling across the length and breadth of the country to the various NYSC Camps for the exercise.

The Orientation Programme for the 2019 Batch “B” Stream 1 Corps Members will commence tomorrow, Tuesday, 18th June 2019 nationwide.

The Corps urged PCMs tp adhere strictly to the following tips:

  1. Every successful journey starts with a travel plan. PCMs, are enjoined to make adequate travel preparation before setting out on the journey. Therefore, you must ensure and crosscheck that you’ve packed all the relevant documents that will be requested at the point of registration. This is to guard against the danger of being asked to go back home and fetch the forgotten documents. Doing so will overexpose you to our roads fraught with so many risks.

  2. Kindly research your destinations thoroughly before leaving.

3, On no account should you board a vehicle by the roadside because of seemingly attractive cheap fare. It is highway to calamity. So many have fallen preys to armed robbers, kidnappers and ritualists due to such indiscreet action. You should board vehicles only from recognised parks.

  1. Please, be conscious of your travel time. Journeys must be arranged in such a way that you arrive your destination latest 6 pm. Note that if it’s not possible to arrive your destination at the aforesaid time, please, break the journey.

  2. Avoid unnecessary argument/discussion bordering on politics and religion, among others. You may unwittingly cause offence. Keep your views to yourself.

  3. Be courteous, but don’t trust people too quickly and don’t be loud while answering telephone calls, so as not to unknowingly divulge information that may place you on harm’s way.

  4. Watch your drinking habit. Alcohol dulls your senses. Always be sober.

  5. Take only what you need for the journey. Don’t overburden yourself with load.

  6. Dress normal. Don’t overdress. Conversely, don’t dress shabbily, since either way, you unduly stand out.

  7. Please, keep a very close watch over your personal effects. It is advisable that you carry your vital documents (certificates, International passport etc) on you.

  8. Don’t put valuables in your back pocket for that’s always the pickpocket’s first point of call. It’s safer to use your front pocket.

  9. Keep your family and trusted friends updated on your itinerary.

The Director – General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim wishes you travel mercies, as you proceed to the respective camps in obedience to the clarion call to serve the Nation for one calendar year.
