Video shows desperate Afghans jumping on air-bound US planes, falling from hundreds of feet, trying to escape country : ‘No words can describe these scenes’

Disturbing videos shared to social media Monday morning have reportedly captured Afghans clinging to air-bound planes in order to escape Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.

In the videos, objects that various outlets reported are people can be seen falling from planes as the aircrafts ascend hundreds of feet into the sky.

What are the details?

Videos captured the moment hordes of Afghani people began chasing U.S. Air Force cargo planes down a Kabul airport runway in desperate bids to flee the country.

According to the Daily Wire, myriad outlets including Newsweek, the Daily Mail, and more reported that those objects falling from the planes were, indeed, people.

The outlet reported that the hysterical mobs forced the U.S. military to use helicopters to “clear people off the tarmac so the planes could take off.”

Insider reported that other photos “depict the bodies of people who had reportedly fallen onto the roofs of buildings in the Afghan capital from planes they attempted to stowaway on.”

“Locals near Kabul airport claim that three young men who were holding themselves tightly in the tires of an airplane fell on top of people’s houses. One of the locals confirmed this and said that the fall of these people made a loud and terrifying noise,” Afghan news agency Asvaka News tweeted alongside a graphic photo of a person’s dead body. The agency also tweeted a video of onlookers examining the person’s body.
