VIDEO - Some of the fatalities from a Sunday plane crash in Thailand were Israelis, said Vorapot Rajsima, the deputy governor of the Thai island of Phuket. The passenger plane, filled with foreign tourists including a number of Israelis, crashed in heavy rain on the tourist island, leaving over 80 dead, officials said. Sources in the foreign ministry reported that two Israelis were injured and eight were still unaccounted for. The two casualties, Vladimir and Isabelle Frielichman, were hospitalized in Phuket for mild injuries as the ministry remained in contact with Thai authorities, in an effort to determine the whereabouts of the remaining Israel. Israeli consul in Thailand, Hanoch Amedi, and the Israel Police attaché in Thailand headed to Phuket on an internal military flight, following the crash to help in disaster relief efforts. An Israeli forensic team is to set out for the area Sunday night, in order to help identity the bodies. Eighty-eight people were killed and another 42 people on the flight - which was carrying 130 passengers and crew - were injured, Rajsima told a news conference. Initial reports had said there were 128 on board. According to the Chabad center in Phuket, many Israelis are traveling in the region. Chabad reported that 500 Israelis traveled to Thailand over Rosh Hashana, bringing the number of Israelis in Thailand to 4,000. "The line between Bangkok to Phuket serves many tourists, including Israelis and at the moment there are many tourists from Israel here," Aharon Salomon, of the Chabad center, told Ynet.

The budget One-Two-Go Airlines domestic flight OG269 was carrying 123 mostly foreign passengers and five crew members to Phuket from the Thai capital, Bangkok, local television station TITV reported. Witnesses described a horrific situation. "I saw passengers engulfed in fire as I stepped over them on the way out of the plane," survivor Parinwit Chusaeng, who was slightly burned, said on the Nation TV channel. "I was afraid that the airplane was going to explode, so I ran away." Parinwit said he looked back and fires raging in the front and back of the plane. "I saw the plane in flames and there was a lot of smoke," he said. According to officials at the scene, the plane crashed in bad weather due to the bad visibility, skidded off the runaway and broke into two parts. Chaisak Angsuwan, director-general of the Air Transport Authority of Thailand, said weather played a part in the crash. "The visibility was poor as the pilot attempted to land. He decided to make a go-around but the plane lost balance and crashed," he said. "It was torn into two parts." Anchalee Wanitthepphabutr, chief of Phuket's provincial administrative authority, said on TITV that the plane had been in flames. The dead and injured were being taken from the plane to several Phuket hospitals, Anchalee said. One-Two-Go is owned by Orient Thai Airways. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has contacted the families of Israelis who were on the passenger list of the Thai flight that crashed in Phuket.
