Drivers in Taiwan with cameras mounted on their car dashboards captured the dramatic footage of TransAsia flight GE235 crashing into a river near the capital of Taipei earlier today.

Footage shows the plane banking sharply to the left shortly after takeoff, and then the plane clips a bridge before crashing into the river.

At least 25 have died so far and 15 have survived. Five crew members and 53 passengers were on board.

Rescuers needed to use a crane to pull the plane out of the water as they pulled survivors into life boats. Another 18 people are currently missing and are feared dead.
