At least 27 killed in Kathmandu plane crash: official

  At least 27 killed in Kathmandu plane crash: official A Bangladeshi plane with 67 passengers on board crashed near Kathmandu airport Monday as it was coming in to land, officials said, as firefighters battled to extinguish the burning wreckage and rescue passengers. Plumes of black smoke could be seen rising from the football pitch where the plane crashed, to the east of the runway at Nepal's only international airport, in the capital Kathmandu."There were 67 passengers and 4 crew members" aboard the plane, said airport spokesman Prem Nath Thakur."So far 20 injured have been taken to the hospital. Police and army are trying to cut apart the plane to rescue others," he added.

That's the final image from his video of a helicopter ride Sunday. Shortly after that, the aircraft crashed into New York's East River, killing Cadigan, 26, and four others.

The other victims were Carla Vallejos Blanco, 29; Daniel Thompson, 34; Tristan Hill, 29; and Brian McDaniel, 26.

Cadigan and McDaniel graduated from Bishop Lynch High School in downtown Dallas, according to CNN affiliate KDAF.

Emergency workers reached the helicopter, but the passengers were tightly harnessed in the open-door helicopter and had to be cut out, Fire Department of New York Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. The helicopter pilot, the only survivor, was able to free himself.

"(Cadigan) was always happy and full of life," says friend and former girlfriend Jordan McDaniel. "He was the type of guy that would do anything for you. And (he) was extremely ambitious with a bright future."

Business Insider, at which Cadigan interned, agreed.

"He was a smart, talented, and ambitious young journalist and producer who was well-liked and made a big contribution," the company said in a statement. "Our hearts go out to his family and friends."
