Shocking video from Kabul airport shows 2 people falling off plane mid-air amid tension in Afghanistan

Following the continued unrest at Kabul ever since the Taliban has seized control over the country, a horrifying visual from the Kabul airport has emerged showing two people falling off a giant plane in a desperate attempt to flee from the country.

As per a ANI reports, it appears that desperate Afghans were clinging on to either the undercarriage of the C-17 or the landing gear of the transport plane when they got flung out due to the huge G-force exerted during take-off.

As per Asvaka news agency, locals near Kabul airport has claimed that three young men who were holding themselves tightly on to the tires of an airplane fell on top of people's houses. One of the locals confirmed this and said that the fall of these people made a loud and terrifying noise.

As per reports, thousands of Afghans have been flocking to the Kabul airport to seek an evacuation flight amid Taliban's takeover of the country.

There were desperate scenes at Kabul's airport on Monday as people tried to board the few flights available. "We are afraid to live in this city," a 25-year-old ex-soldier was quoted as saying by AFP as he stood among huge crowds on the tarmac.

Witnesses reported seeing the prone, bloodied bodies lying on the ground just outside the terminal building.

The airport resembled a chaotic bus station as hundreds of people jostled, pushed and shoved to get on to a waiting plane.

Another video showed hundreds of people running alongside an aircraft that is about to take off and a bunch of people sitting on the wings of the plane, trying to hold on to its body desperately.

Meanwhile, the US military has taken over the security at the Kabul airport to execute the massive airlift of diplomat presence in Afghanistan following the Taliban's takeover of the capital city, The Wall Street Journal reported.
