A plane belonging to Taiwanese carrier TransAsia Airways has crash-landed in a river in Taipei.
More than 50 people were onboard at the time, and a number of people were reportedly injured.
Some reports said there were several people trapped inside the plane in need of rescue.
Taiwan’s Central News Agency (CNA) showed a picture of a plane almost submerged in the Keelung river.
The ATR-72 had just taken off from Taipei Songshan Airport and was headed to Kinmen Airport on the outskirts of Taiwan, just off the coast of south-east China, CNA said.
The cause of the latest incident was not immediately clear.
But CNA quoted a government spokesman as saying the plane crashed after hitting an elevated bridge.
Local channel ETTV showed footage of the plane banking and hitting a road bridge before crashing into the river.
Local media reported that several people had been rescued so far and sent to a nearby hospital.
In July last year 48 people died when a TransAsia Airways plane crashed amid stormy weather in Taiwan’s Penghu archipelago.
