Not necessarily. It wouldn’t be the first time that cockpit floor crushing has forced a pilots head into an overhead panel. I can recall two accidents where properly secured pilots have die under such circumstances.

An update from the Dhaka Tribune:

Biman plane skids off Yangon airport runway
  • Published at 08:16 pm May 8th, 2019
Rescue workers transport an injured passenger on a stretcher after a passenger aircraft of Biman Bangladesh airlines slipped off a runway at Yangon International airport in Yangon on May 8, 2019 AFP
There have been no reports of casualties in the incident

A Biman Bangladesh Airlines plane skidded off the runway in Yangon International Airport on Wednesday.

Shakil Meraj, general manager of public relations for Biman Bangladesh Airlines told Dhaka Tribune that an S2-AGQ - Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 plane skidded off the runway while landing around 6:22pm due to bad weather.

He also said that all passengers are safe. Biman sent a special flight to Yangon from Dhaka at 10:00pm to bring back the passengers and crew.

Facebook photographs show the plane lying on the grass near the runway in Yangon airport after it slid off the runway.

There were 29 passengers, including a child on-board the flight, besides two pilots and two cabin crew members.

Flight BG060 of Bangladesh Biman took off from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 3:45pm, he said.

Yangon International Airport did not confirm the crash but announced that heavy rain had caused them to suspend "runway operations until further notice," reports AFP.

Other incoming flights were diverted to the capital, Naypyidaw.

Thirty-three people including the crew were on board from Bangladesh, Myanmar, Canada, China, India, France, and Switzerland.

Another senior Biman official said: "To the best of my knowledge, there were no deaths in the mishap."

"Due to bad weather, the aircraft skidded off the runway injuring some passengers and two pilots," he said.

Bangladesh Ambassador to Myanmar, Manjurul Karim Khan Chowdhury, told Dhaka Tribune from Yangon, that the front wheel of the aircraft broke in landing at the airport, where it was raining with strong gusting winds.

Nineteen passengers, including two pilots were admitted to hospital to treat their injuries, he said.

"Eleven passengers were released upon receiving treatment at the airport clinic," he added.

The ambassador also said: "Two of our mission officials are already in the hospital where the injured are being treated. I am also on my way to the hospital."

On March 12 last year, another Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 turboprop plane of US Bangla Airlines with 71 passengers and crew crashed on landing at Nepal's Kathmandu airport, killing 49 people.

tame for the area it may be,
you do NOT land in these conditions.
You hold or divert.

Although you may believe your comment is sound, I would guess you are not familiar with the area and associated weather Icelanta. Should you fly there you might be doing a lot of holding (possibly in equally poor conditions) and diverting (if you have the range to the nearest Icelanta wx free airport.

Made for some interesting approaches.

My first experience in Yangon:
Planned to do some landing training there.
Mid of raining season, but weather seemed fine.
How much fuel do we take? Two hours worth seems fine.
Airborne, completed the first pattern.
Turning downwind, lots of rain.
Turning base, tower advises against landing.
Picked up a hold.
Got told airport probably closed next two hours due heavy rain.
Oops.

we fly daily to the area, but we take enough fuel to either hold or land at a suitable airport. And yes, my comment is sound. It is called airmanship.

the single worst piece of airmanship I saw was recently in DAC by Emirates, departing in a +TS in torrential rain, claiming “ the conditions are within my company limits”... maybe you fly for them, then I pity you and your standards.

well, aviation is lucky to have such an aviator as yourself...glad you are so much better than the rest...probably best though, to stay inside your own cockpit, and leave others to theirs...

That’s what a PR person would say, I suppose. Safe is a relative concept.

I learned today that a Calgary passenger broke her back in the accident and is now in hospital in Bangkok.

The crash fractured two of Russell’s vertebrae, compressed her spine and left her with a serious concussion.
