Passenger reactions to Emirates crash landing

Passenger reactions to Emirates crash landing

United Arab Emirates

Amateur video from the interior of a crashed Emirates Boeing 777 shows the chaos and panic as passengers scramble to escape the blaze.

Oxygen masks hang from the ceiling the dimly lit cabin and a frantic crush of people are seen rushing to the emergency exits where their life line awaits.

As he slid down the emergency slide, this passenger caught a glimpse of a plane engine, engulfed in flames.

Moments later a plume of smoke and fire erupt from the plane.

All 300 people on board the flight to Dubai from southern India were safely evacuated, although one firefighter lost his life tackling the blaze.

The investigation continues.
