Tragic final moments: Indian passenger Live-streamed Nepal plane crash, disturbing visuals
In a tragic turn of events, minutes before the deadly Yeti Airlines plane crash in Nepal's Pokhara, four of its passengers had been live on Facebook, sharing their excitement and experience on the flight. The 1.30-minute video shows the scenic view of Pokhara town below as one of the passengers, Sonu Jaiswal (29), can be seen exclaiming "Mauj Kar Di" (it's real fun).
Suddenly, the plane takes a sharp turn towards the left and crashes, turning into flames. The phone camera continues to roll, capturing the towering flames for the next 30 seconds.
These four passengers, all residents of Ghazipur in Uttar Pradesh, were among the five Indians who lost their lives along with 68 other passengers in the crash.
The group, which included Sonu Jaiswal (29), Anil Rajbhar (28), Vishal Sharma (23), and Abhishek Singh Kushwaha (23), had arrived in Kathmandu on January 13th and after performing puja at the Pashupatinath temple, were on their way to Pokhara for paragliding.
