A Russian passenger plane carrying 43 people crashed shortly after take-off in the icy wilderness of Siberia. The ATR-72 turboprop had just left Tyumen on a flight to the town of Surgut when it crashed, killing 31 people. The other twelve passengers survived with serious burns and other injuries after being pulled from the wreckage. According to some reports, the crash took place just four minutes after take-off and the crew did not even have enough time to relay any information to air traffic controllers before impact. Officials are now blaming a build-up of ice as the cause of the crash.
