The accident happened on Tuesday afternoon, after the American-made C-47T plane left the runway before taking off to complete a parachute launch mission.
The announcement was made known through the Twitter account of the Armed Forces of El Salvador and it was reported that a troop element suffered injuries, so it was transferred to the Central Military Hospital and said that his condition was stable.
