The two Dutch tourists were visiting Panama and were supposed to go on a hike in the jungle with a tour guide. However, for some reason, the girls decided to go by themselves a day earlier. They never returned from their hike. A backpack containing their clothes, a passport, their cell phones, and a camera was found several weeks after they disappeared.


The camera contained 90 disturbing shots captured in the middle of the night. While most of them were just black, there was also a photo of one of the girls’ belongings spread out on a rock, an odd piece of fabric or paper hung from a tree and a picture of one of the back of one of the girls’ head with what appeared to be blood.


Even more disturbing, the girls’ cell phones showed that they tried to call emergency services for 11 days before their cell phones ran out of batteries. Some of their bones were eventually discovered in the jungle, but nobody knows what happened to the girls or how they died.

Reddit user Observer_ says:


“TV was such a silly guy. We played Football together, and he was a core part of the squad.

After football practice on Fridays, the squad would get together and head to Pleasure Island. While the rest of us were trying to pick up chicks, he was playing incredible pranks, and just being a mischievous bastard.

It always amazed me how he could cross the line so many times, and never face trouble.

He always appeared joyful and would be the last person I would suspect to take his own life.

It’s been years, but I still randomly think of that tricky son of bitch; photo bombing people, pulling the pants of roided up guys, and leading gay guys on for the kicks.

Miss you TV.”

A 14-year-old Australian boy named Keith Sapsforth tried to stowaway in a flight bound for Japan. He fell from the airplane shortly after takeoff. Stowaways are rare but in fact happen from time to time. In 2010 a 16-year-old boy attempted to stowaway in the wheel well of a plane headed from Charlotte to Boston and was ejected high above Massachusetts.


Stowing away in a wheel well is super dangerous. Not only are you not safely secured to a plane that can go over 500 miles an hour, but an airplane’s wheel well is also not pressurized and can reach super low temperatures such as -50 degrees F. Nevertheless, people have actually gone on such journeys and still gotten off the plane alive. In 2014 a 15-year-old boy travelled from California to Hawaii, a five and a half hour flight, in the unpressurized wheel well of the plane and survived.

Reddit user humblecrab says:


“We had been so busy lately we hadn’t hung out in weeks. I remember her kissing my cheek and telling me we would hang out next Saturday and spend all day together playing games and our usual Chinese dinner dates. She smelled like baby powder because she just changed her son’s diaper. Her red KVD lipstick smeared on my cheek as per usual. She joked about “getting this damn alien out of me” so she could go out to the bar with me for her first time. She died that next Friday.

She had been complaining about feeling contractions, her mother and I believe she had a shocking contraction, maybe went into labor, or maybe her water broke. Who knows? Whatever happened, she swerved viciously while driving and slid into a telephone pole and died instantly.

I miss you so very much. You played the biggest role for a decade of my life, and I will think of you always.”
