An Italian couple missed their flight Air France 447 on 31 May heading from Rio de Janeiro to Paris. We thought to ourselves: these people are really lucky.
Some days later the German-Italian couple Johanna and Kurt Ganthaler arrived back in Europe safely. From Munich they decided to drive home – Merano, Italy – by a rental car.
On the way around Kufstein their car changed lanes for some reason and they ended up in the opposite direction, where they had a head-on collision with a truck.
The woman died in the hospital where she was taken after the accident. Her husband was also injured and he is still in hospital.
After reading such stories, I start to believe in fate.
