Another passenger, Nepalese travel entrepreneur Keshav Pandey, said it was miracle that he survived with only injuries.
Both recalled the flight being mostly smooth all the way from Bangladesh’s capital, Dhaka, to Kathmandu, but said that before the crash, the aircraft violently shook, tilting toward the left and hitting the ground with a huge sound.
