Vietnam 2.0: Afghans plummet to their deaths after tying themselves to plane’s wheels


Several people have been killed after attempting to hold on to a plane ferrying evacuees out of Afghanistan’s capital, as chaotic scenes at the city’s airport have led to reports of casualties, multiple sources claim.

Horrifying footage posted to social media purportedly shows at least two people falling to their deaths as a US military aircraft takes off from Kabul International Airport. In the video, at least two objects can be seen plunging to the ground as the jet gains altitude. 

The Tehran Times claimed that two people were killed after they tried to “hold on” to the plane during takeoff.

Social media posts, citing local media, claimed that three men had attempted to attach themselves to the aircraft. At least one of the bodies was recovered in a residential area near the airport.
