ABC 7 Chicago12.12.2019 Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Des Plaines... Father Ezequiel survived plane crash: WASHINGTON (CNS) — A priest from the Chicago area who was on board an Aeromexico flight that crashed in the Mexican state of Durango July 31 2018, sustained injuries but was “alert and resting,” said a statement issued the same day from the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Though the airline reported no fatalities, Father Esequiel Sanchez, director of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Des Plaines, Illinois, was one of about 80 reportedly injured during the crash of flight 2431 from Durango to Mexico City. Authorities have not said what led to the crash, but some speculate that bad weather may have been a factor. The plane reportedly crashed shortly after it had taken off in stormy weather.
