Dramatic Video Goes Inside Brussels Airport After Deadly Attacks

Dramatic video takes you inside the terrifying chaos at the Brussels airport today as passengers abandoned their luggage and fled after two deadly explosions rocked a departure hall.

One survivor, Ketevan Kardava, said she saw the explosion “and then nothing.”

She said she was on the first floor of the departure hall, buying a ticket, when she saw a “big black item.”

I don’t know if it was a bag or suitcase or something. I don’t know what it was, but it had a flame, and in a second everything filled with smoke,” she said.

Everyone then scattered and wept, and “old people were on the floor.”

A few seconds later, she heard another explosion.

It was such terrible sounds … we were waiting for the third one, you know, and don’t know what to do,” she said.

Taa Wongbe was in Terminal B and rushing to catch his flight to Liberia when the explosions took place.

“I’d just passed the security where we saw where the bombing took place,” Wongbe told reporters. “And we were being rushed and pushed away to the exits so we can evacuate.”

“I didn’t hear the bomb go off but what I did see was at the entrance there was a shattered window,” Wongbe added. “There was some damages to the front and police officers and other officers with guns, just making sure that everyone is okay and pushing people to the exit.”

Wongbe said the damage was extensive.

“I typically fly through this airport so I know where the security checkpoint should typically be but this time around it was not there. It was somewhere else. We thought it was construction but it was pretty badly damaged,” he said.

There were two explosions in the departure hall at Brussels airport, located in the town of Zaventem, according to Prime Minister Charles Michel. There was also an explosion on the rail tracks at the Maelbeek subway station in downtown Brussels, according to a spokeswoman for Brussels transportation department.

At least 34 were killed in the two attacks.
