Bali, Indonesia: A Lion Air jet carrying more than 100 passengers and crew crashed into the ocean while attempting to land Saturday on the Indonesian resort island of Bali, injuring up to 45 people, officials said.
All 101 passengers and seven crew members were safely rescued from the plane, said I Made Krisna Maharta, an official with Bali's search and rescue agency.
Up to 45 people were taken to several different hospitals for treatment, but there appeared to be no serious injuries, said airport spokesman Alfasyah, who like many Indonesians uses only one name. There were only three foreigners on board — two Singaporeans and a French national. All three suffered slight injuries.
