A United Airlines Boeing plane carrying more than 200 passengers from Denver to Hawaii exploded on Saturday, setting fire and smoke from one of the two engines.
After a while, various parts of the engine of the aircraft started falling on the house below. Eventually the plane made an emergency landing.
There were 241 people on board the United Airlines plane at the time. Of these, 231 passengers and 10 crew members were rescued from certain deaths.

David Delusia is one of the passengers on death row after the plane’s engine caught fire. “To be honest, I thought we were going to die soon,” he told a local newspaper.
Because after the explosion, the plane tilted to the right and started falling down. I grabbed his wife’s hand. I mean, this is our last meeting on earth.
