More than 100 people died and two others are fighting for their lives after a Boeing 737 leased by a Cuban state airline crashed after takeoff, reportedly while making a U-turn to an airport in Havana.

The aircraft was carrying 110 passengers and crew, and was heading to Holguin in eastern Cuba from the nation’s capital. It crashed shortly after takeoff, killing almost everyone on board. While the cause of the fatal incident remains unclear, eyewitnesses said that the plane tried to return to the airport after ascending and apparently hit a power line.
