MOSCOW - The death toll from a plane crash in Moscow has risen to five, Russian state-run media said Sunday.
A flight attendant who was among the four wounded has died at a hospital, Ria Novosti reported, citing Red Wings Airlines.
Video released Sunday shows the moment a plane crashed next to a highway in Russia, sending parts flying into oncoming traffic.
The Tu-204 belonging to Russian airline Red Wings was carrying eight people, all of them crew members, when it careered off the runway Saturday while landing at Moscow's Vnukovo Airport. It went partly into an adjacent highway, broke into pieces and caught fire.
Families of those killed will be given 1 million rubles, which is about $33,000, in financial aid from the Moscow government, Ria Novosti reported.
Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for Russia's main investigative agency, was quoted by Russian news agencies Sunday as saying the data recorders were being examined, along with fuel samples. In addition, he said flight documents for the plane have been taken from the airline for examination.
