Congo, Africa A plane flying over the Democratic People’s Republic of Congo met a terrible fate, after a crocodile managed to escape from a stowed bag and send the passengers into a panic.
Investigation reveals that a passenger smuggled the crocodile on board in a large sports bag and had plans to sell it after landing in Congolese regional airport Bandandu, en route from Kinshasa.
True to its ferocious nature, the crocodile tore from the bag in mid-flight and its appearance scared people on board, causing the plane to enter a tailspin and crash into a house. Nineteen people, including flight crew and passengers, died. There are no reports to confirm if anyone was present inside the house.
Officials are calling this bizarre story a tragedy, as family and friends of the victims grieve at the freak aerial incident.
