Southwest Airlines flight 519 from New Orleans-Houston caught fire as it landed on Wednesday. I find 2 things shocking from the incredible video that a helicopter caught of the incident.
1-The amount of time it took to begin evacuating the plane. Over 2 minutes to get the first people out?
2-The guy who throws down his briefcase before sliding down and then proceeds to gather all of his belongings that fell out of the briefcase at the bottom of the slide!
0:05: Plane touches down.
0:45: Plane comes to a complete stop.
3:02: Slides are deployed. (you can see them inflating at the very left side)
3:16: First look at people sliding down
3:50-4:02: The incredibly selfish person blocking the exit of the slide while he gathers his papers…
