Пътнически самолет ATR-42-320 (регистрационен номер YV-1010) на венецуелската държавна авиокомпания „Конвиаса” се разби при подхода си за кацане в депо за метални отпадъци на Пуерто Ордас, предградие на Сиудад Гуаяна. Самолетът изпълнявал полет 2350 от притегателния за много туристи курортен център Порламар на о-в Маргарита към Пуерто Ордас. На борда му е имало 51 души, от които 47 пътника и 4-членен екипаж. Загинали са 15, а ден по късно умират още 2 от ранените. Останалите 34 са в шок като част от тях са приети за болнично лечение с различни по вид и тежест наранявания. От екипажа е оцелял само един. Води се разследване за причините, поради които екипажът с командир Рамиро Карденас е изгубил контрол върху машината. Знае се, че преди катастрофата същият е докладвал за повреда в един от двигателите. Като изходим от мащаба на пожара последвал катастрофата и останките от самолета, истинско чудо е броят на оцелелите, споделят властите.

Venezuela/ 10 km SE of Puerto Ordaz Airport (PZO)
An ATR-42-320 passenger plane, registered YV1010, was destroyed in an accident at Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela. Fifty-one people were on board. Seventeen are confirmed dead and 34 occupants have survived the accident.
Flight Conviasa 2350 had departed Porlamar-del Caribe Santiago Marino International Airport (PMV) on a domestic service to Puerto Ordaz Airport (PZO). It came down in an industrial area about 10 km from runway 07. Puerto Ordaz is a suburb of Ciudad Guayana where the airport is located.
The plane crashed onto property belonging to Sidor, which has a large mill and land near Ciudad Guayana.
One worker, Frank Oliveros, age 44, said that he saw a huge billow of smoke after the crash. Then he saw the wreckage through the smoke and joined dozens of fellow employees and firefighters who rushed to the scene.
Oliverso went on to say that he does not remember names or faces. He said that their only interest at that point in time was getting all the people out of the plane alive.
The partially scorched fuselage of the aircraft actually came to rest among barrels and shipping containers.
Bol?var State Gov. Francisco Rangel Gomez, said that a miracle occurred when referring to the people who survived the crash.
Out of all the people who survived, only one crew member survived.
Experts are working hard to figure out what caused this plane to crash.
