A Russian Su-25 fighter jet crashed into the sea moments before the pilot ejected from the doomed plane in front of tourists close to the Ukrainian frontlines.
Social media users are furious about the response of beachgoers that didn’t try to rescue the pilot of the crashed Su-25 aircraft in Russia’s Krasnodar region.
Several dozen people, including people on a pleasure boat, witnessed the crash of the Su-25 on July 17. However, they preferred to be passive observers, watching the military pilot drown.
Pictures and videos now circulating on social media show the crashing of a military plane in the waters of the Sea Of Azov and the last minutes of its pilot’s life. Eyewitnesses were ample. The pilot, these same witnesses reported, was drowning for 10 minutes.
A male voice states the aircraft crash in one of the videos and asks, “The pilot just ejected from the plane. Shall we go help him or not?” But nobody didn’t even try to rescue the pilot and they watched how he was drowning.
The Russian military said that the jet crashed following an engine failure during a routine training flight, according to state-run news agency Ria Novosti.
