— -- Dramatic video takes you inside the terrifying chaos at the Brussels airport today as passengers abandoned their luggage and fled after two deadly explosions rocked a departure hall.

One survivor, Ketevan Kardava, was on the first floor of the departure hall, buying a ticket, when she saw a "big black item."

"I don’t know if it was a bag or suitcase or something. I don’t know what it was, but it had a flame, and in a second everything filled with smoke," she said.

Everyone then scattered and wept, and "old people were on the floor."

A few seconds later, she heard another explosion.

"It was such terrible sounds ... we were waiting for the third one, you know, and don’t know what to do," she said.

Taa Wongbe was in Terminal B and rushing to catch his flight to Liberia when the explosions took place.

"I’d just passed the security where we saw where the bombing took place," Wongbe told ABC News. "And we were being rushed and pushed away to the exits so we can evacuate."

"I didn’t hear the bomb go off but what I did see was at the entrance there was a shattered window," Wongbe added. "There was some damages to the front and police officers and other officers with guns, just making sure that everyone is okay and pushing people to the exit."

Wongbe said the damage was extensive.

"I typically fly through this airport so I know where the security checkpoint should typically be but this time around it was not there. It was somewhere else. We thought it was construction but it was pretty badly damaged," he said.

There were two attacks in the airport departure hall as well as an explosion at a subway station in downtown Brussels. At least 31 were killed in the two attacks.

At least 10 people were killed at the airport, the Belgian Crisis Center said, and at least 21 people were killed at the subway station.
