Why Are Passengers Taking Selfies Escaping a Burning Plane?

A U.S. Airways flight had to abort takeoff at Philadelphia International Airport on Thursday afternoon. Despite the emergency, at least one passenger captured the moment in a selfie.

 Flight 1702 was headed to Florida, but didn't make it too far. Passengers were evacuated through emergency side doors after the plane's front landing gear collapsed. There were no injuries reported, but the accident led the airport to temporarily halt all traffic.
