A couple who survived a plane crash have sparked controversy by taking selfies

A couple on board a Ladam flight that collided with a fire truck in Lima, Peru, survived. To celebrate this, they have taken photos and posted them on social media. But they received criticism from some followers.

According to the El Sol de Puebla newspaper, the crash occurred at Jorge Chavez International Airport on November 18, when flight LA2213 collided with a fire engine on the runway.

After the impact, the right side of the transport carrying more than 100 passengers caught fire. None of the passengers were injured, but two firefighters in the vehicle involved in the crash were killed.

The surviving couple shared a photo of what appeared to be fire retardant foam near the crash site.

“When life gives you a second chance,” wrote the man identified as Enrique Varsi-Rospigliosi.

After videos of the exact moment of the accident and a photo of a couple started circulating on social networks, users’ opinions were divided. Many said this was no time to take a “selfie” with two dead people.

“Isn’t it inappropriate for people to post selfies of dead sadness?” said one Twitter user.

On the other hand, some netizens added that the couple’s intentions were not malicious and that it was a way of saying thank you, letting family members know that they are fine after the incident.

“You better be well and enjoy the life God gives us every day,” was one of the supportive comments for the couple.
