The 22nd day of May 2020 turned out to be one of the saddest days in the history of Pakistan. As passenger flight PK-8303 with hundred people on board crashed minutes before landing in Karachi’s Model Colony’s residential area.
The exact number of casualties is not confirmed yet, while the rescue operation is currently underway.
The first to reach the spot of the crash were hundreds of rescue and aid workers of non-profit organizations to help authorities in the rescue operation.
Being a hot day of summer, and the fiery heat from the crash has made the ground conditions worse to continue rescue work.
However, Karachi’s rescue-aid workers continued their selfless services without any hindrance.
Netizens took to social media paying tribute to these unsung heroes of a very tragic day.
