A plane crash survivor snapped a seflie while floating in the ocean with a sinking aircraft in the background after the Cessna he was on lost power and made an emergency landing off a Hawaiian island.

It was among the many GoPro camera shots Ferdinand Puentes took of the wreckage after the Makani Kai Air Cessna crash-landed near Molokai Dec. 11.

Other pictures show the bloodied pilot clinging to the plane's wing, and the other passengers floating with life preservers.

"It was so many things just happening. Is it for real? Is this really happening?" Puentes told Hawaii News Now.

Puentes' video even captures the crash-landing itself, including the frantic passengers putting on their life perseveres and evacuating the aircraft.

They were later rescued by the Coast Guard.

"I still have a hard time sleeping at night," he said.
