"Narrow escape of an aircraft which could have ended in a great disaster. Miraculous save by the pilot’s presence of mind."
Pakistan's Secretary General recently tweeted a video of an airplane supposedly avoiding a narrow collision with an oil tanker in Los Angeles, USA.
However, despite it being described as a "miraculous save", it turns out that this incident was actually a computer simulation on Grand Theft Auto 5.
Before being trolled by the Twitter community for his apparent stupidity of not knowing the video was animated, the Secretary General tweeted:
“Narrow escape of an aircraft which could have ended in a great disaster. Miraculous save by the pilot’s presence of mind,”
Here's the video if you want to check it out:
Although computer graphics are now incredibly detailed, I still find it hard to see how the video could have been mistaken for real-life.
