Airliner emergency drill
(10.19.2011)


Rescuers evacuate passengers and give first aid to the “injured” yesterday at Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport during a drill to test emergency preparedness. The drill simulated a fire triggered by an onboard equipment malfunction when an airplane taxied along the runway. Ambulances, fire trucks and police vehicles gathered at the edge of the airfield and rushed to the rescue when the “fire” broke out.
