Social media reports of ambulatory survivors and a video of 'the pilot' being taken to the hospital in a private vehicle:

BBC report

Nobody killed according to the beeb: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-45027112
"The crash happened 10km (six miles) from the airport just after take-off." so doesn't sound like an overrun...

From an interview with a passenger this would appear what happened.

Well, either an over-run or a crash six miles from the airport: It can't be both.

Hope the reports of all surviving are true.

interesting...the passenger states it was a high speed abort....the aircraft was at high speed when it went beyond the fence and kept going beyond the airport boundary.

very fortunate

400 yards

The current Wall Street Journal story is posted here (but may be firewalled)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/airline...=hp_listc_pos1

It asserts the the aircraft came to rest within airport grounds about 400 meters from the end of the runway. That sounds like a high-speed abort to me if accurate.
Regarding passenger and crew condition, the current New York Times article (also may be firewalled):
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/31/w...av=bottom-well

Asserts that 80 people are under hospital treatment, with 12 of the 18 at just one hospital listed in critical condition.

Shouldn't a high-speed abort (before V1) leave enough runway to stop without the overrun?
