From: CNN: 53 die in China plane crash
A China Eastern Airlines commuter jet crashed into a frozen lake in Inner Mongolia seconds after takeoff Sunday, and the Chinese government said all 53 aboard were killed.
Witnesses said they saw the plane break into flaming fragments, which ignited a house and several yachts.
The Canadian-made Bombardier CRJ200, with six crew members, took off from Baotou in the northern Chinese province of Inner Mongolia, about 560 kilometers (350 miles) west of Beijing. It was en route to Shanghai.
