Ferdinand Puentes was a passenger on a plane flying offshore of Kalaupapa, Molokai in Hawaii. He happened to have a GoPro camera with him.

As we read in BroBible, sirens inside of the plane started to go off, warning passengers that the plane was about to crash into the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

As the plane took a nosedive, Puentes snapped a shot on his GoPro. Then, while clutching a floating seat cushion in the water, he took a selfie.

According to Hawaii’s KHON, he was out there for a while before getting rescued by the Coast Guard:

“Steel-toed boots, heavy work jeans, and long sleeve shirt. It was hard and exhausting to swim with all that,” Puentes said.

After floating for what seemed like hours, Puentes and the rest of the people on board were picked up by the Coast Guard.

Here is footage of the terrifying crash:
