This incident seems to have been caught rather well on camera, with a number of videos appearing on social media:

The on-board one is particularly scary! Sadly it seems from other photos that a number of passengers chose to gather their bags from the overhead lockers before evacuating. That delay seems to have cost 41 people their lives. When will people learn :-(
