A young woman monitor at UCPA Benodet said "We ran to the plane, the cockpit was filling with water. We lifted the tail of the plane. I took my knife to try to break the window but I could not do it. A guy inside was trying with his feet, without success. But he touched the foot of a trainee and we realized that it was open. We helped them out. "
