Survivor records plane crash on GoPro


ABC News has obtained new footage taken from inside the cabin of the Cessna aircraft that crashed off the coast of Hawaii last month, killing state health director Loretta Fuddy. Passenger Ferdinand Puentes, 39, was on board and used his GoPro camera to capture the other passengers bracing for impact.

After the plane strikes the water, the cabin can be seen quickly filling with water. “It just bit into me like am I dreaming,” Puentes says. “Steel-toed boots, heavy work jeans, and long sleeve shirt. It was hard and exhausting to swim with all that.”

“The water was rough,” passenger Rosa Key told ABC affiliate KITV. “The pilot was trying to get everybody together but it was kind of impossible because of the waves.”

It was during the wait for rescue that Puentes took the incredible selfie above.

The plane departed from Molokai for Honolulu with nine people on December 11. Fuddy was the only fatality. The rest of the passengers were rescued by the Coast Guard an hour after the crash.
