TAIWAN---The ten survivors of Taiwan s worst
air disaster in more than a decade include a 34-
year-old woman who called her father after scram-
bling from the wreckage and seeking help at a
Hung Yu-ting escaped through a hole in the
fuselage that opened up after the plane ploughed
into homes Wednesday while attempting to land
on the outlying resort island of Penghu, killing 48
"She called me on the phone to say the plane
had crashed and exploded but that she had already
crawled out and I should come right away to get
her," said Hung s father, Hung Chang-ming, who
lives just a few hundred metres from the crash site.
Hung rushed to the scene, but his daughter had
already been taken away by rescuers.
"When I was halfway there the fire was still
really big, but it was smaller when I arrived on the
scene," Hung told reporters. "There were two other
injured outside and the first ambulance had already
taken away three, including my daughter."
Hung Chang-ming joined rescuers and other
residents in putting out the fire and rescuing other
survivors before going to the hospital to check on
Hung Yu-ting was recovering yesterday from
burns to her arms, legs and back suffered during
her escape. The condition of the other survivors
wasn t immediately known.
Other relatives weren t so lucky, some recalling
the last phone conversations with their loved ones.
Shu Chi-tse said he had spoken to his son, Shu
Chong-tai, just before the flight left the southern
city of Kaohsiung on Taiwan s main island for the
short ride west across the Taiwan Strait.
"He is a good boy. He cares for me and his mom.
He loves his grandma a lot," Shu said.
Among the dead were all four members of the
flight crew, a family of six and a family of four.
Stormy weather and low visibility are thought
to have been factors in the crash of the twin-pro-
peller ATR-72 operated by TransAsia Airways.
One of the questions is why the pilots decided
to proceed with the flight despite rough weather
on the heels of a typhoon that had forced the can-
cellation of about 200 flights earlier in the day.
However, aviation authorities said conditions were
safe for flying and two other planes had landed at
Penghu prior to the crash.
The mother of one of the victims screamed at
TransAsia Chairman Vincent Lin when he arrived
to pay respects at the funeral hall yesterday.
Lin kneeled down, bowed to the woman and
