A TransAsia Airways ATR-72 crashed into the Keelung river shortly after takeoff from Taipei Songshan Airport on February 4, 2015. At least 12 people died. There were 58 people on board.

Another video from a further angle:
Fifty-eight people were onboard the domestic flight. The plane is now half-submerged in the Keelung River.
Rescuers have cut open the side of the fuselage and are trying to rescue several people still trapped inside.
Taipei officials said 16 people suffered injuries. Thirty people are still unaccounted for.
Cindy Sui reports: ”Many of the people on board are still inside the aircraft”
The ATR-72 turbo-prop plane had just taken off from Taipei Songshan Airport and was heading to the outlying Kinmen islands, just off the coast of the south-eastern Chinese city of Xiamen, CNA said.
