4:03 pm
because he got too close to your daughter? that's crazy. >> t area of southern costa rica called pona. it's a beach town that is known to be tranquil, and according to some people, these kind of threats are happening more and more. and that's why this video was released to us, because they wanted to warn u.s. citizens about what is going on. >> if you've done enough flying in your time, you've probably flown in one of the smaller planes the airlines run there, those turbo prop planes? what would you do if one of the engines stopped in mid-air? >> start praying. >> this horizon airplane was taking off out of portland. soon after it took off, passengers heard a thump, an explosion, looked out the window and saw the right engine propellor just kind of winding down to a stop. >> all of a sudden, everything

4:06 pm
until the construction team and osha -- >> what is going on? >> out of nowhere, this bus pulls up and starts beeping their horn and almost hits people who are at this press conference. >> so the press conference is probably set up somewhere where this bus needed to go and honked the horn to get them to move, and when they didn't move, just drove through the press conference? poor steve is still trying to take questions when this goes on, and then the bus driver gets out and has something to say. >> you need to move out of my way. i've got passengers on this bus. >> is she serious? >> did they know it was a bus stop they were blocking? >> they weren't thinking of the bus route when they set this up up. really? when they reopened, they invited a guest and two others
