Passenger captures fatal plane crash into ocean, wild selfie


See PetaPixel

On December 11th, Ferdinand Puentes captured many people’s worst nightmare on video: his plane making an emergency water landing.

Puentes enjoys capturing takeoffs and landings, and so his GoPro was already rolling on that fateful day when something very bad happened to the single engine of the small plane in which he was a passenger.

Puentes shares the tale of the crash, which killed one passenger while seven others survived, on his Facebook page, complete with dramatic stills grabbed from his GoPro. Among the more amazing details: Puentes almost got smacked by a humpback whale while trying to swim to shore!
