An ATR should climb okay on one engine, the ATPCS system when having a flame out on take off should feather the dead engine and apply 100% power on the live engine and cut the engine bleeding. Normal take of power at sea level is 90%, 100% is for go around and engine out and emergency power can give up to 115%.
Last reports I read is that they reached 1050 feet, so the plane was climbing, I'm afraid we are again seeing a pilot error.
I'll share the engine out after V1 scenario on ATR.
to reduce drag, very important.
-Check engine flame out, check up trim green light on live engine and Np for Autofeather.
-400 feet AGL, level off and get speed to clean up the flaps. Set Maximum continuos speed.
-continue climbing in clean speed and proceed with the memory items and the checklist.
So if the reached 1050 feet all was okay, maybe while doing some check or some talking they lose control of the plane and stall. The CVR will point out.

I would be curious to hear from someone with experience on the ATR, I have only driven Cessna's and in those during a stall the ailerons are to be kept level as they can induce a snap roll if used to correct. Using the rudder to keep the plane level in a stall is the correct procedure. I wonder if it's the same on ATR's.
Latest update 23 dead and 18 missing (they think trapped inside the plane)

Take off engine cuts are still probably the most widely practiced failure scenarios in the sim.
by far yes,

According to the souls on board and fuel load , it might have been fairly heavy as well.
So you are low, slow, perhaps heavy, and now the left engine loses pwr...
53 pax and not a very long flight, I don't think it was very heavy, maybe around 20500-21000 kgs, the max is 22 800 kgs on take off.
