‘We crashed, but it's OK’: Passenger records dramatic VIDEO after airliner skids into river
A passenger recorded a short video after a Russian Boeing 787 slid off a runway in Sochi, crashing into a river and catching fire on both wings.

“We crashed, but it’s OK, I guess,” a man can be heard calmly saying in a short clip recorded minutes after the airliner crashed into a river in the southern Russian city of Sochi. The video shows flames blazing in the night, and some people can be heard shouting at the background.

The incident happened on Saturday after the plane skidded off a runway during a late-night emergency landing. All 166 people on board survived, the Health Ministry said, adding that 18 passengers, including several children, received injuries.
