Monkey-Fighting Crocodile Kills 19 on Monday to Friday Plane

A crocodile smuggled aboard a small flight in the Democratic Republic of Congo in a passenger's duffel bag escaped, panicking passengers aboard and crashing the plane. Nineteen people aboard died as a result.

Authorities had to kill the crocodile on the ground when it emerged from the wreckage, but might not have gotten the story had it not been for a lone survivor of the flight who recounted the terrifying tale. When the crocodile emerged, passengers all went to one side of the plane to avoid it, causing the pilot to lose control of the imbalanced vessel.
