A Google  Reverse Image search of keyframes directed the image to  a video that was posted in September 2019. This  video showed moments before a bus accident near Kat Momin  in Sarghoda district, Punjab, Pakistan. This viral clip was taken from a  YouTube video posted under  the  caption, “CCTV footage of Kot Momin bus accident”. The video  can be found here and a screenshot of the  same  is as follows:

The video as obtained  from YouTube  shows the  time stamp to  be  the date of the accident. When this is compared  to  the viral video, it was seen that the date was striked out using a white mark.

A simple search on Twitter with key words, “Kot Momin bus”, showed a tweet from Fast News which is as follows:

The images included in the tweet when compared with that of the ones obtained  from the viral video shows that the seat upholstery is the same in boat which concludes the fact that the  video is not  from the flight that recently crashed but that from a bus accident last year.
