A Greek passenger has hold of how he was spared from being one of the setbacks in the Ethiopian plane accident.

The Nairobi-bound Boeing 737 smashed only minutes after an early-morning departure from Addis Ababa on Sunday. All ready – 149 travelers and 8 group individuals – kicked the bucket in the accident.

Antonis Mavropoulos, a Greek man, should be the 150th traveler however he arrived two minutes late for the flight.

He booked a later flight but was then prevented from boarding by airport staff.

He added:


They led me to the police station of the airport. The officer told me not to protest but to pray to God because I was the only passenger that didn’t board the ET 302 flight that was lost.

The airport authorities explained that they wanted to question him because he was the only passenger booked onto the doomed flight who wasn’t on board.

They said they couldn’t let me go before cross-checking my identity, the reason I hadn’t boarded the plane etc
