A Real-Life Final Destination?


Sometimes life imitates art a little too closely. I’m sure you’re all aware of the disaster of Flight 447 earlier this month, in which a plane carrying 228 people disappeared during its journey between Rio de Janeiro and Paris. One passenger who never made the flight was Johanna Ganthaler, who had been due to take the flight back to her home in the province of Bolzano-Bozen with her husband, Kurt.

But due to running late, the couple had missed the flight that been scheduled to take off at 19:03 local time on May 31 2009 and had remained in Brazil until the following day. There is little doubt that Ganthaler and her husband had felt extremely lucky for missing the doomed flight, but events recently took a more bizarre and deadly turn.

Soon afterwards, whilst driving through Kufstein in Austria, a car containing the couple veered into the opposite lane and into the path of an oncoming truck. Whilst Kurt Ganthaler escaped alive he was seriously injured, but sadly his wife would die in the crash.

This was purely an accident and there was no higher force at work, but its similarities to Final Destination is unnerving!

    And they flew on an earlier Flight – AF443 and were well on their way before the crash flight took off.
