A portion of the plane can be seen in the water surrounded by boats and rescuers.

19 people were killed when a passenger plane crashed while trying to land in Lake Victoria, Tanzania.

There were 43 people on board the Precision Air flight, of which 24 survived.

The two pilots and two crew members are yet to be found. Rescue workers and local fishermen are searching the area.

The plane was almost completely submerged, with only the rear section (called the fin) above water, surrounded by rescuers and fishing boats.
