SPRING VALLEY - A 17-year-old Spring Valley teen has recently become the eyes of the world into what happened on the Emirates Air flight that crash landed in Dubai on Wednesday.

Riya George, a senior at Ramapo High School, used her cell phone to record what was going on around her when she was on board the flight. 

"When they were landing, everyone was like praying, holding their loved ones and they were screaming and stuff," said George. "And then when the plane stopped, everyone took their baggage. All they wanted to do was just get out."

Since George's video was aired, the images have been shared hundreds of times on social media and through the mainstream media. 

Everyone on the plane survived the crash but a Dubai firefighter was killed while fighting the fire.
