Italian who missed AF 447 flight dies in car crash

Posted: June 10th, 2009 | Author: AF447 | Filed under: AF 447 | Tags: |

An Italian woman who arrived to the airport late for the fatal Air France flight 447 has died in a car accident, according to ANSA news agency.

Johanna Ganthaler, a pensioner from the Bolzano-Bozen Province (South Tyrol, Italy) and her husband, Kirk, were on vacation in Brazil and missed flight 447 after arriving to the airport late. They were able to board a later flight and avoided being victims of the horrible crash.

The couple rented a car in Munich, Germany and decided to drive home to Italy. On their way home, while driving through Kufstein, Austria, their car ended up in the opposite lane and they had a head on collision with a truck.

The woman died at the hospital that she was taken to. Her husband is still in critical condition.

That is such a sad story. You escape death in one tragic accident only to die in another a few days later.

    I am beginning to believe that it is a person’s fate to die on a certain date and everything was predestined for the person to die.
    If one has to die, there’s nothing one can do about it…his/her fate is already written in his/her destiny. Sad but that’s life.

    Well that sure sucks! Though they do say you are more likely to perish in an auto accident than an airplane accident…

    Just incredible!!! “Double bad-luck” or Destiny??? “To be…or NOT to be….that is the question.”

    It is horrible that passengers means NOTHING to aircraft companies!!! Many different types of planes have been having trouble with their speed sensors since 1996!!!

    I don’t think this is destiny. This is fear psychosis. They were obviously harassed by what had happened and how they had just escaped because of pure luck. And in that state, they probably did not focus enough on their car drive, as they were still too disturbed. It is very disappointing, but probably opens up a new theory of what the government should do - people who just miss big accidents by such fluke should be taken care of as well for a while.

    What’s more, from the looks of it, they took a car because they were probably afraid to fly.

    “The couple rented a car in Munich, Germany and decided to drive home to Italy. On their way home, while driving through Kufstein, Austria, their car ended up in the opposite lane and they had a head on collision with a truck.”

    Makes it look like they were paranoid of taking a flight and hence they took a car

    People, it’s a classic urban myth created to perpetuate a belief in destiny. Do some research.
