Passengers on a Philippine Airlines flight heard this announcement from the captain, Capt. Juan Procopio:
"Mga kababayan, I am sorry to inform you that we have lost power to all of our engines and will shortly crash into the ocean"
The passengers were obviously very worried about this situation but were somewhat comforted by the captain's next announcement:
"Mga kababayan, we at Philippine Airlines have prepared for such an emergency and we would now like you to rearrange your seating so that all the non-swimmers are on the left side of the plane and all the swimmers are on the right side of the plane"
As commented by one of the passengers:
"Galing, that's what i like about PAL, always has some contingency measures of some sort!, I hope they help me out
coz' i definitely don't know how to swim."
After this announcement all the pasengers rearranged their seating to comply with the captain's request. Two minutes later the captain made a belly landing in the ocean.
The captain once again made an announcement:
"Mga kababayan we have crashed into the ocean. All of the swimmers on the right side of the plane, open your emergency exits and quickly swim away from the plane. For all of the non-swimmers on the left side of plane
---THANK YOU FOR FLYING PHILIPPINE AIRLINES- "
