Featured Grettel Landrove died, Plane Crash Death Toll Climbs To 111

The two other survivors, also women, remain in critical condition due to severe burns and other trauma, according to the hospital treating them.

The death toll from last week's plane crash in Cuba rose to 111 on Monday as one of the three survivors, 23-year-old Grettel Landrove, died in a Havana hospital, Cuban state-run media said.

The two other survivors, also women, remain in critical condition due to severe burns and other trauma, the director of the hospital where they are being treated told the state-run broadcaster, Reuters reports.

Several world leaders sent their condolences to the people of Cuba following the crash of the Boeing 737, which crashed shortly after take-off from Havana's Jose Marti International Airport and was en route to Holguin with 114 passengers and crew on board.

The plane was a 39-year-old 737 that a little-known Mexican company called Damojh had leased to Cuban flagship carrier Cubana.

Mexico's civil aviation authority suspended Damojh's operations on Monday as former complaints about its maintenance practices and safety standards emerged.
