They and the four crew members survived.

The Austin American-Statesman reports that the company’s CEO, Joe Rotunda, and one of the two crew members were the most seriously injured.

Company spokesman Jeff Christensen said in an email Wednesday that Rotunda underwent surgery Tuesday and is recovering.

The other three employees were treated for minor injuries and released, he said.

Tegucigalpa's airport has long been notorious one of the more difficult approaches in the hemisphere, surrounded by mountaintops and residential neighborhoods.
