Narrative:
An ATR-72-500 received substantial damage when its undercarriage collapsed after a very rough landing where it bounced about four times before veering right off the runway into a small sand pile near the end of the runway. The ends of the blades of the starboard propeller sheered off upon striking the sand pile and penetrated the fuselage.
