AP Releases Raw Video Of Crashed Chinese Passenger Jet, Injured Passengers

Hours after a Chinese airliner crashed in Heilongjiang province, The Associated Press has released raw footage of the wrecked Embraer E-190.

It overshot the runway on landing last night, killing at 42 people, injuring 54 others.

Firefighters battle flames in the foggy darkness. We see the plane's damaged wings, its charred tail. Later, in one of several scenes from a local hospital, nurses wheel an injured passengers down a hallway.

One last clip shows the accident site in daylight. A TV reporter and producer climb over scattered, burned pieces of its fuselage, as workers investigate the debris.
