Grim Reaper

An Italian woman who arrived late for the Air France plane flight that crashed in the Atlantic last week has been killed in a car accident.

Johanna Ganthaler, a pensioner from Bolzano-Bozen province, had been on holiday in Brazil with her husband Kurt and missed Air France Flight 447 after turning up late at Rio de Janeiro airport on May 31.

Creepy – just like the “Final Destination” movies…

    I guess this is exactly the sort of situation someone invented the word coincidence to describe.

    It’s also exactly the sort of situation someone invented the word creepy to describe.

  3. GigG says:

    There’s a movie or 3 in that story.

    Final Destination all over again

  5. faxon says:

    Perhaps is she was on the flight, she could have stopped the terrorist on board. Evidence starting to leak out about a rag-head on the plane…..

  6. Patrick says:

    #5 That was rumor squelched today.

  7. zorkor says:

    yeah, if something goes wrong and you cant solve it, blame it on a dead person who the media says was a terrorist. Sure, a dead person can never defend himself…

    as for the dead lady, it was her time to go and i think it was due past her time when she didnt board the plane..

    #6 – Where was that rumor squashed? I recall hearing about mysterious phone calls occurring before the flight.

  9. Patrick says:

    #8 The French gov’t, today.

  10. LibertyLover says:

    Perhaps Death didn’t get the memo that she had missed her flight.

    Just think — all those people died due to an after-life bureaucracy snafu.

  11. Patrick says:

    #10 – The Purgatory computer system was “upgraded” to Vista a couple of years ago. Request from Satan. 😉

  12. How creepy is that. Sounds like her ticket was up no matter where she ran. Apparently death becomes her.

  13. chuck says:

    Obviously she was the target. When they didn’t get her by blowing up the plane, they got her by crashing her car.

  14. Orangetiki says:

    This event keeps reminding me more and more of a tv show about a plane crash, and how everyone was tied into one another.

  15. hhopper says:

    Why did you use a picture of God for this story Joe?

  16. deej says:

    #13 chuck – come on Adam Curry – we know it’s you!
    (In the morning!)

  17. Tallon says:

    People who manage to avoid death still eventually die anyway. News at 11.

  18. Jägermeister says:

    #15 – hhopper

    And here’s the congregation.

  19. chuck says:

    #17 – on a long enough time-line, life is fatal.

  20. Buzz says:

    Kurt, what are you doooooing?

  21. John K says:

    Maybe it is “The End of Times”.

    A complete retard is president of the US.

    Do we need any more proof?

  22. Jägermeister says:

    #21 – John K – Maybe it is “The End of Times”.

    Yes, it is. Kill yourself now, before it’s too late.

    A complete retard is president of the US.

    No, Bush left office a couple of months ago.

  23. aco says:

    Check probabilities. Anybody has at least 100 times more chance to die in the car than in the plane.
    And if you’re from Italy and you tend to miss planes in Brasil and then drive through Austria, chances significantly increase as you’re somebody who’s a lot in the cars driving unfamiliar routes and certainly more than average.
    Not creepy at all.

  24. Todd Peterson says:

    Why is this creapy? We are all going to die

  25. So _she’s_ the target, ok….

  26. 888 says:

    yeah well, how different it is from this?

    what a stupid story
