How We Narrowly Escaped the Plane Crash That Killed Brazilian Footballers – Lawmaker, Journalist Open Up

Following the tragic plane crash that claimed the lives of many Brazilian footballers and other passengers, a politician and journalist have relieved how they escaped death.
 The scene of the crash
Many talented Brazilian footballers and many others lost their lives in a tragic plane crash which occurred in Colombia.
According to CNN, four people who were due to board the plane that crashed, killing 71 people in Colombia, have now revealed how last-minute changes stopped them from getting on the flight.
The Lamia 2933 flight, carrying Brazilian football team Chapecoense, crashed late Monday near Medellin. Six of the 77 people on board survived.
Gelson Merisio, a state legislator for Santa Catarina and an ardent fan of the Brazilian club, planned to travel with the players to watch them take on Atletico Nacional in the first leg of their Copa Sudamericana final.
Merisio, 50, had been looking forward to the game only to switch his plans late on because of work commitments.
“I want to be clear, that while I was scheduled to fly on the plane with the team, I opted not to do it due to work obligations this week,” he wrote in a statement on Facebook.
Later, after the severity of the crash became evident, he paid tribute to those who lost their lives.
Just three players, Jackson Ragnar Follmann, Alan Ruschel and Helio Hermito Zampier Neto, survived the crash. Three others, two crew members and a reporter also survived.
Doctors in Medellin amputated Follmann’s right leg and he is currently in the hospital’s intensive care unit, according to Juan David Arteaga, the Undersecretary of Social Protection for the state of Antioquia.
Arteaga says Neto is under observation following multiple surgeries and Alan Ruschel is in the ICU.
Another of those who was originally supposed to be on the plane was journalist Ivan  Agnoletto.  He said he gave up his seat for colleague Gelson Galliotto, who had always dreamed of covering such a huge game.
“The pain is still too much for me to think about if God would’ve saved me,” Agnoletto told Globo. “I was scheduled to cover the game, but my colleague had a huge dream to cover an international final.
 
“When I told Gelson Galiotto the news that he could go in my place, he could not believe it: ‘Really? I’m really going?’ It was his dream.”
Agnoletto said he did not hear about the crash until his wife began to receive a barrage of calls with people offering their condolences.
“It was as if I was dead,” he added. “I went to the TV and saw the plane had crashed.”
The mayor of Chapeco, Luciano Buligon, and the president of the club’s board, Plinio David de Nes Filho, were also on the passenger list but missed the flight to attend a meeting in Sao Paulo.
 
“Only God can explain these things, and how I stayed behind,” Buligon told Globo. “It is the biggest tragedy Chapeco could go through. We lived a moment of ecstasy with our football club.”
Meanwhile, supporters of  Chapecoense  have held an emotional vigil for the victims of the  crash in which almost all the team’s players and officials died.
Thousands of fans gathered at the Arena Conda Stadium in Chapeco and held lights up in the darkness in tribute to the 71 victims.

Kemi Olunloyo reveals how she got married in prison

I GOT MARRIED LIKE I PROMISED TO IN 2017. Yes I got MARRIED to someone in prison. This is my FIRST SUNDAY away from #PHMax prison. I lean towards Catholism and Islam which I grew up in and attended the Catholic church inside the prison. There are up to 4 churches and a mosque in there plus the Pentecostal churches that visits inmates weekly and bring us the word of God and provisions.

I became a ‘bible reader’. The same bible I ripped in 2016 as being a “storybook” of fiction may have been real. I studied what the prophets of old said. It seems unreal but these things likely happened.

But why are we commercializing religion and brainwashing the congregation? I will become a Woman of God very soon and use my prophetic abilities and bible story knowledge to apply wisdom to your lives. Prison always make all inmates spiritual…right? Hell No! Jesus shows up in the most expected places. Unlike the enemies of the #freethesheeple movement who are so Christ-obsessed? I did not find #Jesus.

He found me! Jesus is my first and new HUSBAND! I have never been married or divorced in my entire life. This will be an everlasting relationship. Say Alleluia! May God forgive your sins too! Don’t be obsessed with religion. Minimize! #HAPPYSUNDAY to all of you and my former inmates. My seat in the front row near our Catholic female leader and 76yo #MamaOwerri will be empty today as Father tells the church about my release last week.”
