You don't see that everyday

Today I went out for a run on the beach and for some reason everyone was looking east. There was a big clump of people at this one spot on the beach, and also a few police cars on the street. Then an ambulance came.

I went to the beach and there was an airplane in the water with its tail all messed up. Here's what happened (if you can read Portuguese you can read here). This was one of the propaganda planes that runs banners behind it for everyone on the beach to see. They don't know why, but it crashed in the water. A few surfers rescued the pilot, who was taken to the hospital but who was likely unhurt. Then a group of 50 people pulled the plane from the water to the shore.

Anyway it certainly added spice to my run.
