|Dana Air Tragedy..Beautiful lives lost.|
They were just 11 nautical miles away from landing. Just 11! The Daily Times quoted a senior official of Dana Airlines, whom it didn't identify, as saying the plane had been undergoing repairs for several weeks. On 11 May a similar Dana Air plane - possibly the same one - developed a technical problem and was forced to make an emergency landing in Lagos, some reports say.
"The station manager protested its use, but the Indian management insisted it should fly," the official said, according to The Daily Times.
It is still not certain how many people lost their lives on the ground since the crash occurred in a residential area of the city but many reports do claim there are no survivors. Some of the bereaved families were seen at the Murtala Mohammed Airport Two Domestic Two(MMA2) wailing uncontrollably over their loved ones who were on board the flight. And while all this was happening, I was in Church participating in the monthly communion service via the internet, led by Man of God, Pastor Chris. While we were sharing in the Lord's table, families were plunged into anxiety and fear. I pray God to grant the bereaved families the Fortitude to bear this irreplaceable losses.
