Video shows terrifying aftermath when plane's cabin pressure drops on flight to Dublin

The passengers were flying on flight 0B3755 with Blue Air when the incident occurred.

During the flight, the cabin pressure appeared to drop which forced oxygen masks to fall from the overhead lockers.

In the video, passengers could be seen panicking while looking after children who were crying.

Most of them had already put their oxygen masks on while flight attendants spoke to other passengers.

The plane took off from Cluj-Napoca in Romania and was bound for Dublin Airport.

However, after an hour, the plane was forced to make an emergency landing at Bratislava Airport in Slovakia.

According to Romanic news Alba24, passengers could smell burning while others complained they were not receiving oxygen from the masks.

Thankfully no-one was injured and passengers boarded another plane to continue their journey.

Blue Air later confirmed to the news website the emergency landing was a precaution following sensors indicating a depression in the cabin.

The airline issued a statement in regard to the incident: “The Boeing 737-800 aircraft operating flight 0B3755 on the Cluj-Dublin route took off at 10.10 (Romanian time) and after approximately one hour flight the commander requested landing at the nearest airport, for performing additional checks.

“Thus, around 11.40, the aircraft landed under normal conditions at Bratislava Airport (Slovakia).”

A similar incident happened in 2016 on the same airline when the cabin pressure dropped.

The plane was travelling from Milan to Bucharest when the air masks dropped from the ceiling.
