News of the day: crush at Pearson

From CBC:

More than 300 passengers and crew on board an Air France flight escaped from a fiery wreck when their plane skidded off the runway on Tuesday afternoon at Toronto's Pearson Airport.
Only 24 people received minor injuries.

I understand that it is a story, a legitimate one I guess. But what I don't understand why the coverage of it has to be so incessant to the point that it becomes nauseating. Aircrafts are just like any other machines, sometimes shit happens to them. This time, we're actually quite lucky. Noone on board died. Those directly invovled will make their conclusions, but what's the benefit this story carries for the general public. I have no idea.
