Fourteen people were killed on Saturday in a plane crash in the Brazilian Amazon region near the northern town of Barcelos, which is a popular tourist attraction, according to the governor of Amazonas state.
Governor Wilson Lima announced on the X platform that 12 passengers and two crew members were killed in the accident.
Brazilian media reports confirmed that there were no survivors in the plane crash, but official officials did not immediately respond to requests for more details.
The G1 news website reported that 18 passengers were on board the ill-fated EMP-110 plane, equipped with two engines and manufactured by the Brazilian company Embraer.
According to what was reported, the plane was heading from the state capital, Manaus, to Barcelos, a trip that would take approximately 90 minutes.
The UOL news website, citing the state’s Minister of Security, Vinicius Almeida, reported that the passengers were all Brazilians and were going to the Barcelos tourist area, which is surrounded by national parks and nature reserves, to practice hunting.
Washington : Johnson & Johnson unveils a new logo after 135 years
In an important shift away from the iconic logo that has been around for 135 years, Johnson & Johnson has unveiled a new company logo.
The traditional cursive handwritten signature, reminiscent of co-founder James Wood Johnson’s handwriting, is being replaced with a modern script as the company shifts its focus toward medical devices and pharmaceuticals.
However, it should be noted that as the company’s logo changes, consumers may not notice the difference immediately. The hand-lettered logo will continue to appear on familiar consumer products such as Band-Aids and Tylenol.
This change comes in the wake of the recent separation of Johnson & Johnson into two separate entities, one of which focuses on medical devices and pharmaceuticals, while the other focuses on health products and operates under the name “Kenvo.”
