“As sirens and bells of airplane were going, it was quiet. Everyone knew what was going on,”recalled Ferdinand Puentes to KHON.
Puentes, 39, was one of the nine people on board the Makani Kai Air Cessna that went down in the waters off Kalaupapa, Molokai, Hawaii last month.
“It just bit into me like am I dreaming,” said Puentes, who recorded the entire ordeal on his GoPro camera.
As the plane splashed into the water, passengers quickly abandoned the fast-sinking fuselage. “Steel-toed boots, heavy work jeans, and long sleeve shirt. It was hard and exhausting to swim with all that,” said Puentes.
The pilot handed Puentes a seat cushion to use as a flotation device.
As he swam away from the scene of the crash, Puentes stopped and snapped one last photo: A selfie of himself in open waters with the plane’s tail behind him.
