Ten years after surviving a plane crash, man recounts his experience.
Following an ADC plane crash that claimed the lives of over 96 people in 2006, one of the survivors has every reason to celebrate his life.
The flight which had over 100 passengers including the late Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Maccido, had been going from Lagos to Sokoto and had crashed shortly after takeoff during a stopover at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
The survivor identified as Peter Onuka, decided to speak out ten years after the fatal crash. Here’s what he wrote on his Facebook page:
“Exactly 10 years today, I was involved in a plane crash. The plane, a Boeing 737 operated by ADC Airline, was on a passenger flight from Lagos to Sokoto, via Abuja. After a short stop at Nnamdi Azikiwe airport, Abuja, the plane took off again, heading to Sokoto with 100 passengers and 5 crew members. But some seconds or a minute after takeoff, the plane began to lose altitude, crashed and burst into flames.
The pictures below show the remains of the plane. At least 96 people died in the crash, my heart goes to these people and their families however, out of this wreckage God brought me out alive without serious injuries. How God saved me in this crash I can’t explain but I am grateful. Today, I raise an altar of praise to God. please do me a favour if you are reading this, as you take a few seconds to lift a voice of praise and thanksgiving to God on my behalf. Thanks be unto God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ”
This is awesome!
