Chilling footage captures the moment the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane fell from the sky before it crashed into homes today.

Most of the 107 people onboard the Airbus A320 are feared to have died after the pilot reported an engine failure and mayday.

The pilot attempted an emergency landing but new footage highlights just how it ended in tragedy.

The clip, shared online, shows the plane rapidly descend the skies near Karachi Airport in Pakistan and fall helplessly closer to the ground.

It disappears behind buildings but a huge cloud of smoke is eventually seen bellowing into the sky.

The plane exploded after the collision, it is thought.

And in the footage, thick smoke continues to rise into the sky across the densely populated area.

At least two people are said to have survived, and at least one relieved family revealed that a loved one who was a passenger on the Airbus A320 had contacted them in the aftermath to confirm that he was still alive.

A ball of smoke and flames can be seen after the crash

The body of a five-year-old child was recovered from the rubble in Model Colony, as more than 40 people, including a baby covered in dust and other young children, were rescued from the site, local media reported.

It was unclear whether any people on the ground or in buildings were injured or killed.

Local residents and rescuers were seen carrying young children from the site as local mothers desperately tried to find their kids amid the chaos.
