Cuba plane crash: Death toll rises to 112

New Delhi:

The Cuban Health Ministry have stated that the toll from the crash of a passenger jet in Cuba has risen to 112 after another survivor of the catastrophe died.

A ministry statement says Emiley Sanchez de la O succumbed to her severe injuries on Friday after nearly a week of treatment. The 40-year-old woman was one of three people who initially survived the May 18 crash of the Boeing 7373-200 jet shortly after take-off from Havana.

A 23-year-old who survived the crash died earlier this week, and authorities have identified the only living survivor as 19-year-old Mailen Diaz.

The plane was being operated by a Mexican charter company for state-owned airline Cubana when it plunged in a fireball in Havana's rural outskirts.

Investigations are on to get to the root of the accident.
