Passenger plane crash landed into the ocean

Officials in Micronesia say they are now looking for man who was unaccounted for in the crash of an Air Niugini flight that landed short of the runway at Chuuk Airport on Friday.

"The airline confirms that all other passengers and crew have been accounted for", statement added.

"Local authorities and the airline are continuing to search for the whereabouts of the missing passenger".

Air Niugini is also in the process of transferring the passengers and crew from PX 073 to Port Moresby, whilst six passengers remain hospitalized in Micronesia.

FILE - In this September 28, 2018, file photo, local fishing boats move in to recover the passengers and crew of Air Niugini flight following the plane crashing into the sea on its approach to Chuuk International Airport in the Federated States of Micronesia. In an interview with Bible Baptist Radio Station on Chuuk a few minutes after being discharged from the Chuuk hospital with little more than a gash on his forehead, Jaynes said, "I thought we landed hard until I looked over and saw a hole in the side of the plane and water coming in". We came in very low and unfortunately the flight attendants panicked and started yelling and I was trying to be calm and help. "I thought "this is not the way it's supposed to happen".

The Federated States of Micronesia is a nation made up of over 600 islands in the Pacific.

County health unit seeing steady declines in flu shot numbers
Rarely, people who receive the flu shot experience muscle pain, a slight fever, and feelings of weakness or discomfort. It's virtually impossible to predict the coming flu season. "The flu, they can be bad sometime", said Emma Ball, 75.

Jaynes said before he got off the plane through an emergency exit, water was waist high inside the aircraft.

"Careful because I don't know how deep this is", one man said as the camera moves inside the half-sunk plane, the team sloshing past rows of seats submerged up to the armrests.

He said the flight attendants were yelling, and he suffered a minor head injury.

"I was really impressed with the locals", said Jaynes.

Air Niugini is Papua New Guinea's national airline and lists only one 737-800 among its fleet of 21 aircraft on its official website. Everyone on board survived, Air Niugini said.

In the "Miracle on the Hudson", both engines on a U.S. Airways jet failed after it struck a flock of geese during takeoff from New York's LaGuardia Airport.
