(FeaturedNews.com) – A new video has been going viral on TikTok in the past week. The video was taken by Monica Raygada, a seasoned traveler who had a shocking turbulence experience on her recent trip.
The video, which has received more than 10 million views since it was posted on TikTok, shows moments from a Lufthansa flight from Austin, Texas to Frankfurt, Germany during which the plane hit some intense turbulence. As a text overlay, Raygada wrote: “I almost died on a Lufthansa Austin to Frankfurt flight.”
As she recalled, only an hour and a half into the flight, while the passengers had been eating dinner, the plane started to drop suddenly. Raygada recalled that moment it felt like they were in a zero gravity environment. The passengers were completely shocked by the event, with food trays, trash, and leftovers surrounding them.
As the passenger recounted, following the initial drop, which led to everything flying around and people screaming, it appeared like they were just continuing to fall. That was when everyone went quiet thinking that “this was it.”
The ceiling of the aircraft had clear evidence of the liquid and food that had flown during the turbulence.
However, after some time the crew was able to get out of their seats and start checking that no one was injured.
A spokesperson for Lufthansa Group revealed that “Lufthansa flight LH469 on March 1 from Austin, Texas (AUS) to Frankfurt, Germany (FRA) encountered brief but severe turbulence about 90 minutes after takeoff. The Lufthansa flight made an unscheduled landing at Washington Dulles Airport as a precautionary measure.”
