'My Plane Just Crashed': See Passenger's Harrowing Post-Crash Selfie Video

Posted on

On Thursday night, US Airways Flight 1702 crashed at Philadelphia International Airport after a tire burst during takeoff. All 154 passengers and crew members were evacuated safely from the plane and rebooked, but not before one young passenger did a bit of first-person journalism.

Hannah Udren took a selfie outside the crash of Flight 1702, and posted it to Twitter with the understated caption “so yup.”

But the video Udren shot shortly before her selfie tells another side of the story.

In the clip, a frightened Udren runs across a field, breathlessly explaining what just happened to her: “We are evacuating the plane. The plane is on fire.”

In the background, other passengers scream and run away from the downed plane, but what stands out is Udren’s terrified voiceover: “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god.”

Watch the video above.
