A Romanian man who survived a plane crash on Saturday said he didn't realise he was alive and believed he was experiencing his soul walking out of the plane wreckage.
A small plane, a Cesna 206 crashed in Cornetu village, outside Bucharest, soon after taking† off on Saturday. Fortunately all four passengers survived the accident.
One of the lucky survivors, Hijazi Amer told Romania TV news channel that he didn't believe he would survive the crash.
"We were all waiting to die. We noticed when the motor stopped and we looked down as the plane was spiraling down. That's it, total silence. We saw the plane crashing . It is difficult to explain... it's like all life stops and the time has no meaning anymore", he said.
The man said that he didn't realise that he survived. "I didn't believe I made it, it took me some time... In the first moments after the crash, I was sure that it was my soul waking out the wreckage. Now we are ok", the survivor said.
All the passengers have been rushed to a nearby hospital with minor injures. They will receive counseling for overcoming the crash shock.
