The propeller driven plane was approaching it’s destination when a crocodile, hidden in the smuggler’s hand luggage escaped and caused a distress. Passengers stampeded to one side of the tiny plane, causing it to be thrown off-balance.

The crocodile also survived the crash, but was later killed with a machete by authorities. The reptile was being smuggled by a passenger who had plans to sell it illegally. The sole survivor told authorities that a crocodile escaped as the plane was on it’s final approach. The terrified flight attendant hurried towards the cockpit, followed by the passengers.
