Wizz Air birdstrike

This report makes for interesting reading. Seemingly, the customer service subsequent to the event left a lot to be desired along with, as reported, aborting after rotation.

However, the lighter side. Not often a bird strike provides such a rich selection of human interest aspects, thankfully no nursery's, / orphan homes / elderly retirement homes were adjacent to the runway, but, the engine duly "burst into flames ! ", the brakes were hit hard !....funnily enough with an RTO and bird strikes aren't "incredibly rare " kidding, but can, it appears, be dangerous.....who would have known !

I could be wrong, but, I get the impression this reporting may possibly have more to do with the source than the actual event.
