TAIPEIBEIJING, Feb. 5 (Xinhua) -- The death toll of Wednesday's TransAsia Airways plane crash in Taiwan has risen to 32 with 11 people still unaccounted for as search operations continue, the island's response authority said on Thursday.


Another 15 people onboard the plane were injured when the ATR-72 aircraft crashed in the Keelung River at 10:56 a.m. on Wednesday after its wing clipped a taxi on an elevated freeway 10 minutes following takeoff.


The driver and a passenger of the taxi were also injured.


According to Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council, 18 of the dead were from the Chinese mainland. Altogether 31 passengers from the Chinese mainland, including three children, were onboard Flight GE235 which was heading for Kinmen from Taipei. Of the rest, three were injured and ten are still missing.


The mainland passengers were on trips organized by two travel agencies from Xiamen City in Fujian Province Homme Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 JP Casual Noir Rouge Pas Cher , Taiwan tourism authority confirmed.


Rescuers operating underwater and in rafts and helicopters are on Thursday scouring the crash site and along the Keelung River as well as its banks. The cockpit and tail of the plane have been hoisted out of the water, while some segments of the fuselage remain submerged.


The Taiwan Aviation Safety Council said it has invited accident investigators from the Chinese mainland to take part in the accident investigation.


Ma Xiaoguang, spokesman with the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, said on Thursday afternoon that the mainland civil aviation authorities will dispatch investigators.


Investigators from France, producer of the aircraft, and from Canada, producer of the engine Homme Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 Blanche Pure Platinum Pas Cher , have also been invited.


Meanwhile, TransAsia decided on Thursday to hand out compensation of 200,000 new Taiwan dollars (about 6,356 U.S. dollars) to each injured victim (including the two in the taxi), and compensation of 1.2 million new Taiwan dollars to the family of each identified fatality.


Since the crash, Taiwan's civil aeronautics authority has conducted safety checks on power systems of the island's ATR-72 aircraft.


According to the authority, TransAsia had already completed two flights using ATR-72 aircraft on Wednesday before the crash Homme Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 Blanche Pas Cher , with flight and maintenance reports of these flights featuring no record of malfunction.


Dispatchers on duty denied the possibility of a rushed takeoff when interviewed by investigators.

A cross-Strait emergency response mechanism has been launched to deal with the accident.


According to Taipei authorities, the crashed plane had been in service since April 2014 and was subject to a routine safety check last month.


TransAsia announced on Thursday that passengers who wanted to cancel their bookings would have their usual commission fees waived.


This is not the first time that an ATR-72 aircraft has crashed in Taiwan. On July 23, 2014, TransAsia Airways flight GE222 crashed on Taiwan's Penghu Island Homme Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 Noir Bleu Pas Cher , killing 48 people.
