Crocodile on plane kills 19 passengers
Really? And people say that airplanes are one of the safest forms of travel.
So the Croc didn't actually kill anyone, the over reaction by the passengers did.
I was hoping the article would say how big the Croc actually was, it doesn't look that big in the picture.
I clicked in here thinking something along the lines of 'Snakes on a Plane'.
Actually it is. On average, you could fly everyday for 14,000 years before you'd die in a plane crash.
Though I sure don't feel that safe when I fly back to Boston after winter break in a snow storm
Panic on plane kills 19 passengers
There, fixed the title.
The croc was hardly the major player in the crash.
I mean, how big is a "carrier bag"???
Weird, never saw this on major news stations. Terrible.
Why was the crocodile live but just in a bag?
Stupid people acting like sheep... Just as faith in humanity starts to build up you hear about people making such a fuss and dying over something no more dangerous than a kitten.
Get off your high horse
Enough is enough! I have had it with these mother****ing crocs on this mother****ing plane!
I see a movie falling out of this... I'd call it... Crocs on a plane... what an original thought!
Thank god we have you to save the humanity
I fully expect someone in Hollywood is working on the script right now. At the very lest, I expect a Sci-Fi...err, SyFy channel original movie.
As long as Sam Jackson is in it
Why would i save humanity?
The story here is some people did a very stupid thing that cost them there lives. You are talking about 19 adults running to one end of a plane to get away from something that was held in a carrier bag there for unless it is a venomous snake they over reacted.
People doing stupid things wether it is all running to one end of a plane or jumping of a harbour wall into shallow water (common here) it is still stupid and every time i hear of people doing stupid things that get them killed for no reason i do start to loose faith in humanity.
Perhaps it is the most wise decision to base my opinion of the rest of our race on this, but that does not negate that these people did something stupid that got them killed.
Or, if you're FX, it's "Enough is enough! I have had it with these monkey fighting snakes on this Monday to Friday plane!"
I thought this was some giant croc, eating helpless passengers one-by-one as the more nimble ones snapped cellphone photos, hopefully in HD movie form.
Why didn't the pilot put the plane in a deep dive or climb to tumble the passengers back to their seats. You can also go into a quick dive and knock their heads against the ceiling.
They do this all the time for sport and then blame turbulance.
How did the croc get past security?
Snakes on a Plane
Crocs on a Plane
Army Ants on a Plane
Lamas on a Plane
Koala Bears on a Plane (safe for the entire family to view)
Roseanne Barr on a Plane (hold for Halloween release)
Wow, well I never would have imagined. I feel very sorry for the families of the dead but as long as the crocodile was not too big couldn't the people keep their feet off the floor and just wait it out until landing?
Did they at least turn this "killer" croc in to a handbag or some nice luggage?
Did he die, or did he move on to a bigger plane, with more choices on the menu?
Stay tuned ..........
There are disputed reports about this, and some degree of skepticism
Apparently the incident took place back in August
Reports say the croc survived the crash and was killed by a machete wielding villager helping with the wreckage
No report I read has ever given the size of the croc
But apparently, the flight was on final approach, the flight attendant panicked and fled to the cockpit, followed by the passengers, not allowing the pilots any margin of error to correct the imbalance.
Hindsight is 20/20, and none of us are Crocodile Dundee or the late Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter, so questioning their panic is a little hypocritical in my opinion. This was not a hamster or a ferret. We don't know the size of the croc, but they have needle sharp teeth, powerful jaws and thrashing tails. Obviously none of the passengers thought they were endangering their lives. They were trying to escape an immediate danger without realizing they were creating a greater one.
Squeeze his nuts Steve. Make that little beauty bark. R.I.P.
