During the push back process, the cockpit crew noticed smoke and stopped the aircraft. All 196 occupants were evacuated but some were standing on wings and jumped on the tarmac. 27 passengers were injured, some of them seriously. Aircraft was considered as damaged beyond repair due to smoke.It seems that a short circuit occurred in the cockpit panel, on captain side, most probably in the vicinity of the oxygen system.
