Have anyone really cheated death before !! Have You?

Postby Scorpion » Fri, 17 Mar 2006 2:02 pm

If you cheat death will it come back looking for you like in the movie Final Destination? Are some people destined to die?

After watching the all the Final Destination , got so many questions to think on the superstitious thoughts.Some cases about the 9/11 survivor makes to think much harder

:( The Times magazine had reported that Mr.Marshall one of the victims of the Staten Island ferry crash was a 9/11 survivor, :( Another 9/11 survior frankie chu who died of SARS, while traveling to Beijing on a business trip should have been in the building reported by CNN, Hongkong.

Surviors from tsunami tragedy. CNN, Singapore on 29 December 2004.

Martin Maussner and his family were airlifted by helicopter from Unawatuna, a small fishing village on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Though not seriously injured, the children were visibly shaken.

Ms Nathalie Jacob Maussner said: "They were scared, they did not want to live alone and 'please mama, wake me up, the big wave is coming' and they have also got vomitting, and they are cold and tired, and they just want to rest now."

Second year Engineering undergraduate Oozie Koo and 22 others were part of a marine conservation project on Surin Island. They had extended their stay to go diving at the Similans but the expedition was called off five minutes before they hit the waters.

"We heard from the dive master that the diving was cancelled. At first we were initially puzzled and eventually when we heard what happened, we were quite worried," he said.

The Lee family, who were also at the Similans, felt they cheated death.

All people are destined to die. After a disaster the death rate amongst surviors will be higher anyway, because of shock, infection, depression and anger.

I think all other deaths of surviors soon after the event can be put down to those things, or chance. I don't think there's anything supernatural about it. Sorry.
