Some believe that the smallest actions can have the biggest consequences. We don’t often think about this, however. At least, not until we’re reminded of it. Yet, this has never been truer for Mr. Huang.
On Monday afternoon (21st March), China suffered a devastating loss. An Eastern Airlines jetliner carrying 132 people crashed in southern China’s Guangxi region. However, as it turns out, there were supposed to be 133 people. That missing person was Mr. Huang.
According to Jiu Pai News (九派新闻), Mr. Huang was supposed to board the flight with the other 123 passengers. However, he changed his mind after their first flight got cancelled. “I decided to refund my ticket,” he shared in a video. The simple decision saved his life and Mr. Huang acknowledged he had been fortunate enough to escape. He added that he hoped those involved in the plane crash would return safely.
Mr. Huang wasn’t the only one who was shocked at what could have happened if they had gotten on the flight. Another person shared that they had been planning to take that flight to Guangzhao. However, they decided to delay their flight as they hadn’t taken the Covid-19 swab test. They were later shaken by the news of the crash, admitting they felt scared with the close call.
According to reports, the Boeing 737 plane had been heading to Guangzhou from Kunming when it lost contact over the city of Wuzhou. Eyewitnesses claim the plane fell out of the sky and started a fire when it crash-landed. There had been 123 passengers and nine crew members on board. Currently, authorities are still looking into the cause of the crash. Rescue efforts are underway, but neither a death toll nor any casualties have been confirmed.
