Survivors of a plane crash that killed 158 people have told today how they jumped from the aircraft as it began to break up.
The Air India plane overshot the runway in Mangalore at the southern Indian city's 'table-top' Bajpe airport, crashing into a gorge and killing all but a few of the 169 passengers on board.
Nearby residents rushed to the scene following the incident at around 6.30am (local time), describing 'shocking' scenes as they pulled charred bodies from the wreckage.
Around six people survived the crash and are currently being treated in nearby hospitals, officials said.
