Crocodile on plane kills 19 passengers after stampede

Published

A plane crash in Africa may give new meaning to the term, “snakes on a plane.”

A small passenger plane crashed into an empty house after a stampede of passengers tipped the jet into a tailspin in the Democratic Republic of Congo, killing all but one of the travelers aboard.

The almost unbelievable news was reported by the news site news.com.au.

According to the report, a passenger had stashed a crocodile in a sports bag (and had intended to sell the animal). The crocodile allegedly escaped, causing a stampede, which put the aircraft off-balance and caused in to fall into a tailspin. The plane then “smashed into an empty house just a few hundred metres from its destination.”

“According to the inquiry report and the testimony of the only survivor, the crash happened because of a panic sparked by the escape of a crocodile hidden in a sports bag,” news organisation Jeune Afrique reported, according to the Australian website.

“One of the passengers had hidden the animal, which he planned to sell, in a big sports bag, from which the reptile escaped as the plane began its descent into Bandundu.

“The terrified air hostess hurried towards the cockpit, followed by the passengers.”

The plane was then sent off-balance “despite the desperate efforts of the pilot” said the report.

“The crocodile survived the crash before being cut up with a machete.”

The jet was a Czech-made Let L-410 Turbolet.

A fifteen-minute CNN interview with Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) wound down to an abrupt end on Sunday morning as the "State of the Union" host Dana Bash cut off the Trump defender's insistence there was no quid pro quo offer from the president to Ukraine's leadership, with the CNN host telling the GOP lawmaker, "That's not true. I don't want to debate about it."

In an interview where Meadows continued to rage about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter, Bash finally brought up Trump's phone call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky that led to the impeachment inquiry.

Discussing the call where Trump asked for a favor, Meadows pushed back after she said Trump, "Allegedly held up aid and he said it in this phone call."

According to the report, Trump made an appearance on NBC's Hardball during the Clinton impeachment saga, where he told host Chris Matthews that Clinton needed to "go after his enemies," which has, to date, been Trump's main response to his own impeachment.
