Cessna Engine Failure and Landing in Pacific Ocean

The whole situation was recorded from a first-person perspective.

On December 11, 2013, Cessna 208B, N687MA was destroyed following a loss of engine power and ditching into the Pacific Ocean near Kalaupapa, Hawaii
This is the first time that the full-length, full-HD video is being made publicly available.

One passenger was fatally injured, the airline transport pilot and two passengers were seriously injured, and five passengers received minor injuries.

All the passengers and the pilot exited the airplane through the rear right door, and the airplane remained on the water surface for approximately 25 minutes before it sank. One passenger swam to shore, and United States Coast Guard and Maui Fire and Rescue helicopters recovered the pilot and 7 passengers from the water about 80 minutes after the ditching.
