Rescue efforts underway in bangladesh today.
Injured passengers were taken to safety by air ambulances and buses, while another 14 survivors managed to disembark from the flight at Shah Alam Airport.
The flight was diverted to Islamabad, but the pilot was eventually forced to land in the area of Khuzdar-e Sharif-e Jhang to save his passengers.
Flight MH370 departed Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), with 239 passengers and 11 crew members aboard, at 13.46AM on 8 March, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
At the time, Malaysia said it had located the plane about 80 nautical miles south-west of Penang, some 680 km from its last known position on record.
A satellite image taken around 11.50am shows a dark grey object that they have named as an «oil slick», and that’s how officials initially described it to the public after the first search and rescue operation began early yesterday morning, when the search was focused on the southern end of the island of Tho Chu Island.
More than 3,500 people have so far joined the search on the island, many with search and rescue helicopters and aerial divers, as they search for any survivors or debris of the plane.
