In the Yichun city's Number One Hospital, two survivors recount their experiences.

Crash survivor said, "The plane started to shake violently as we were told it was approaching the airport. We were hit by the luggage from the overhead compartment. When the plane stopped shaking, the people in the back row started to rush forward. I asked others to open the emergency door, but nobody did. So I tried, but I couldn't open it. When the fog came in, we couldn't breathe for nearly one minute. Fortunately, as I rushed forward, I found a hole in the right corner of the first row. When we escaped from the plane, we saw it had caught fire and there was some explosion."

"I tried to break the windows with my mobile phone when I saw the airplane catch fire. But the windows are too hard to break. Finally, we heard there was a hole in the front of the plane, and we escaped through it." Said the crash survivor.
