Rescuers discovered flight recorders of an Antonov An-28 passenger aircraft, which crashed on Wednesday in Russia’s Far Eastern Kamchatka region killing 10 people.

The twin-engine An-28, en route from the regional capital Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, was carrying 12 passengers, including two children, and two crew members, when it crash landed. Four people, including a child, survived the crash and were hospitalized.

A statement from a committee investigating the incident said that the flight recorders will be handed over to the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) for decoding.

The aircraft lost radio contact with traffic control at 12:28 local time [00:28 GMT] on Wednesday shortly before it was due to land at an airfield in the village of Palana, about 990 kilometers north of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

The pilots had been trying to make an emergency landing when the plane came down in woodland some 10 kilometers from Palana.
