Several passengers cheated death on Tuesday night when an aircraft belonging to Dana Air skidded off the runway of the Port Harcourt International Airport in Rivers State and crashed into a nearby bush.

According to Sirika, "An aircraft operated by Dana Airlines was involved in an accident yesterday February 20th 2018 at the Port Harcourt International Airport".
