Graphic Video Shows Dangling Afghan Body Stuck In U.S. Aircraft Landing Gear


A body of an Afghanistan citizen was just found inside of a U.S. military aircraft’s landing gear.

Yesterday after the city of Kabul was taken over by the Taliban thousands of Afghanistan citizens rushed to the Kabul airport in order to escape the destiny that awaits them with the Taliban in power.

Several videos from the complete chaos that took place at the Kabul airport  showed men clinging onto a C-17 U.S. military aircraft and another video showed two of those men falling off in mid air.

Well now sadly a third video has surfaced and shows a body of a lifeless Afghan’s body being beat up by the wind outside of that same C-17 aircraft due to the fact his body got stuck in the aircraft’s landing gear.

If you have a weak stomach you might not want to look at the video below so here’s your warning.

Politico had more on the gruesome story:

The body of an Afghan so desperate to escape the country hours after Kabul fell to the Taliban was found in the landing gear of an American C-17 transport aircraft hours after it hastily took off from Hamid Karzai International Airport, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

The body in the aircraft’s landing gear has made it temporarily inoperable, the sources said.

The news is the latest disturbing development after chaos erupted at Kabul’s international airport over the weekend following the Taliban’s stunning takeover of Afghanistan’s capital city. Terrifying videos showing Afghans clinging to planes, including the military’s massive C-17 cargo jets, as they attempted to take off dominated news segments across the world Monday. Some videos showed Afghans falling from mid-air from a plane leaving the airport.

If your wondering how a C-17’s landing gear looks like this this will give you an idea:

The New York Post covered the story too:

The body of a dead Afghan was found in the landing gear of a US Air Force plane that hastily took off from Kabul airport on Monday as thousands desperately tried to climb aboard even as it taxied down the runway.

Human remains were found inside the C-17 transport plane’s wheel well after pilots were forced to make an emergency landing in a nearby country because they were unable to retract the landing gear, sources told the Washington Post.

The person is believed to have climbed onto the landing gear and tried to stow away before the plane departed in the frantic attempt to flee the country after the Taliban takeover.

Shocking videos showed masses of Afghans chasing after the plane as it taxied down the runway, with some managing to cling on as it took off.

At least two people plunged to their deaths moments later as the plane rapidly gained altitude over the city.
