Plane passenger Ferdinand Puentes turned on his GoPro camera as the Makani Kai Air Cessna he was on started its crash landing into the ocean off of Hawaii.

"As sirens and bells of airplane were going, it was quiet. Everyone knew what was going on," Puentes told KHON news.

Puentes' video shows the passengers jumping out of the sinking plane during the incident last month.

The video he shot is gripping.

Puentes and the other survivors were in the water long enough to watch the plane sink but were later picked up by the Coast Guard.

One passanger, Hawaii's Director of Health, Loretta Fuddy, died in the plane crash.
