Heartbreaking images continue to pour out of Afghanistan as thousands of people attempt to flee the now Taliban-controlled country. With people clinging to the fuselage of an overloaded C17 an Apache helicopter was needed to clear the runway so the plane could take off. The imagery is startling and the scene unfolding remains dire.
As has been widely reported, Kabul and the entire country of Afghanistan have fallen back into Taliban control. In scenes reminiscent of the fall of Saigon, thousands of people attempt to flee the country as madness ensues at the Kabul airport.
On a flight reportedly containing over 800 passengers attempts to take off an Apache helicopter was used to clear the runway of people attempting to clamber onto the flight. The scene is heartwrenching.
The video was shared to Reddit by an anonymous user and is only one of the many images and videos pouring out of the country as chaos unfolds on the people of Kabul.
