Greek man saves his own life from the Ethiopian crash by being two minutes late

Greece | A Greek man, Antonis Mavropoulos, was saved from the fate the rest of the 157 people suffered by being 2 minutes late in boarding the flight.

Mavropoulos was supposed to board the flight as per schedule on March 10, however, he got 2 minutes late and was denied the boarding of the flight.

The flight later went on to crash just after the takeoff which resulted in the unfortunate incident.

Mavropoulos uploaded a Facebook page titled ‘My lucky Day’ in which he described this miraculous escape from predestined death.

He said that after he missed the flight, he was taken to the police station of the airport. The officer told him not to protest but to “pray to God because I was the only passenger that didn’t board the ET 302 flight that was lost”.

The officers demanded an explanation on why he wasn’t the only person who did not board the flight.

“They said they couldn’t let me go before cross-checking my identity, the reason I hadn’t boarded the plane etc.”

Mavropoulos, working with a non-profit organization, was travelling to Nairobi to attend the annual assembly of the UN Environment Programme, according to Athens News Agency.

On Sunday, an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737-800MAX flight to Nairobi crashed, taking the lives of all the 157 people onboard, with 149 passengers and 8 flight crew.
