Someone managed to record a portrait video in a bombed, depressurized plane

Yesterday a suspected bomber seemingly blew an explosive device on Flight D3159 out of Mogadishu, resulting in a depressurized cabin, falling oxygen masks, and ultimately an emergency landing back to the airport shortly after take-off.
One Awale Kullane, Somalia's deputy ambassador to the United Nations, decided to start filming the festivities while the pilots were rushing the emergency landing, and the video that you see below ensued. Oh, the times we live in - no matter the gravity of the situation, there will always be someone with their finger on the virtual record button. Not that we are complaining - we've never seen a bombed, depressurized cabin from the inside before, and the passengers real reaction, after all - yet we are glad everything went as well as the situation allowed.

I guess in this type of situation is easier to film than help others, am dazzled.

Or maybe he was recording while others were assisting people who needed help? Just a thought.

LOL....If you going to generalize an entire country under one definition at least learn to spell, kiddo. Its 'caste system', smart ass. I am pretty sure Americans never discriminated against dark-skinned people. Britain never created any colonies and made countries fought against each other, France is really welcoming of non-french speaking tourists and Europe overall is very welcoming to Syrian refuge. Get some education before making a sweeping statement with your half-baked knowledge! You're a pseudo-intellectual and a hypocrite. PS. Trust me you'd only be in the way of people who are actually trained to evacuate a flight in case of emergency. They are taught to ask for help in case they need one.

Due to the oxygen intake according to Fight Club's Tyler Durden... Tyler Durden: [pointing at an emergency instruction manual on a plane] You know why they put oxygen masks on planes? Narrator: So you can breathe. Tyler Durden: Oxygen gets you high. In a catastrophic emergency, you're taking giant panicked breaths. Suddenly you become euphoric, docile. You accept your fate. It's all right here. Emergency water landing - 600 miles an hour. Blank faces, calm as Hindu cows. Narrator: That's, um... That's an interesting theory. ;-)

But it actually doesn't really make you euphoric. Too much oxygen results in alkolosis which results in muscle pain, spasm and probably tetany. You would be shaking and cramping while doing that. Just saying ^^

Seems hollywood action movies are way off. Was expecting to see passengers clinging on sideways for dear life. Instead we get guy up front takes off headphones, "Hey did they turn up the a/c, it got breezy all of the sudden".
