An unknown number of passengers fell out of a plane over the Democratic Republic of Congo in mid-flight. This was a cargo plane with many passengers, some say up to 350 (they are never quite sure of actual numbers as some passengers are not supposed to be on the flights), many of whom fell out of the cargo door when it became unfastened, 7 deaths confirmed but it could be 129 dead.
