The horrors of the Colombia plane crash are unfolding every minute as more information pours in, but the incredible story of Matheus Saroli will make you believe that someone out there is definitely watching out for us.
Matheus Saroli is the son of Chapecoense coach, Caio Junior who died in the plane crash. Not many know this but Matheus Saroli was one of the people who was to travel with the squad to Medellin in the fateful flight which ended the dreams of 75 people. He however, missed his flight because he forgot his passport!
“Thank you all for calling and sending messages,” Saroli said in a Facebook post. “I was in [Sao Paulo] today and I did not board because I forgot my passport.”
This is the rough translation of the facebook post by Matheus Saroli:
“Friends, I, my brother and my mother are well. We need strength, I ask you to give us some privacy, especially to my mother. And thank you all for calling and sending messages. I was in São Paulo. I did not embark, since I had forgotten my passport. We are strong, we will go through this. Thank you all.”
With five survivors in the hospital, there is some hope that the air crash investigators might be able to find out the exact reason of the crash sooner than expected. The goalkeeper of the team was amongst the survivors but succumbed to the injuries late last evening.
