Two young girls aged 18 and 17 died tragically in Chínipas, Chihuahua, Mexico, on the afternoon of Saturday, March 25, 2017, when they took pictures with their cell phones on a runway and were hit by the wing of a small plane which was making its landing.
The victims were identified as Nitzia Mendoza Corral, 18, and Clarissa Morquecho Miranda, 17. Reportedly, they had attended the horse races that took place on Saturday afternoon in an area next to the runway.
They climbed on top of a truck in front of the runway and took pictures of the place but they did not realize that a small plane was landing, and one wing of the aircraft hit them on the head and they died.
