A witness told Mexican news outlet Proceso that she spotted the plane making ‘one turn in the air’ before it crashed.

‘Then I heard three explosions,’ she said.

‘When we approached the plane it was already on fire. About 20 minutes later the rescue teams arrived.’

The plane was part of a fleet operated by XÉ Médica Ambulancias.

‘We deeply regret the deaths of our colleagues (and) aeromedical crew,’ the company said in a statement posted on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.

‘Your family and friends, please accept our condolences.’

The Morelos State Attorney General’s Office is leading the cause of the investigation.
