Two Dead, 83 Hurt After Jet’s Engines Fail at Moscow

Dec. 4 (Bloomberg) -- At least two people have been killed and 83 injured after a Dagestan Airlines passenger jet made an emergency landing near Moscow, the Russian Health Ministry said.

The aircraft, with 168 people on board, made an emergency landing at Domodedovo airport, 30 kilometers (19 miles) south of Moscow, after all three engines cut out, a spokeswoman for the Emergency Ministry said by telephone.

The pilot of the Soviet-era model Tu-154, which the ministry said was flying from Moscow’s Vnukovo airport to Makhachkala, the Dagestan capital, had to shut down two engines soon after takeoff. During the landing at Domodedovo the third engine failed, according to the ministry.

The jet rolled off the runway and hit ground constructions, the Russian Investigative Committee said in a statement on its website.

An investigation into the incident has been opened, the committee said.
