Over the weekend, a LATAM Airlines aircraft that was about to take off from Lima's airport caught fire after colliding with a fire truck on the runway. Thankfully, all 120 passengers and the airline personnel made it through the horrific disaster. Two firefighters, who were present on the runway, were killed in the crash.
One fortunate couple, who were able to flee the jet without sustaining any injuries, celebrated their safety by posting a selfie with the wrecked plane moments after the catastrophe. Selfies have gained popularity.
After successfully leaving the aircraft, the pair took a selfie. They can be seen smiling in the image while being covered with a white, chalky fire suppression chemical. They are obviously relieved to have survived the incident.
The image was also posted to Facebook by A320 Systems with the caption:: "Selfie of the year. Glad they are okay".
