The Sole Survivor.

Extracts from this document...


The Sole Survivor. Muar, 29 January 2003: All but one of the 116 people abroad an Air Asia plane died when the passenger plane lost airspeed and crashed. The Boeing 737 headed from KLIA to Senai on a domestic flight. The sole survivor, a 17-year old girl was critically injured...and the sole survivor is me! The lights went out at the moment of the crash. The sound of everything was deafening- shrieking metal, busting glasses, and the painful screams. In a second, the people around me thrown forward into the gloom, and I was lobbed very far away from my seat. It was extremely dark and I could not see anything except hearing my own scream that went harmonically with the sound of annihilation. Then, it suddenly became silence...and it seemed that I was alone. Quiet and the only thing that I could hear was my own breath...inhale...exhale...inhale...exhale... ...read more.


It was so dark and complete blackness. So dark that it would make no difference between opening my eyes or close them. I could see nothing but I knew there was someone beside me. I could feel his warmth and smell his fragrance...CK Crave. I whispered, "Hello, can you hear me" but there was no reply.

He yelled. A group of rescuer came to me and removed the thing on my chest...I felt relief. I feel very lucky to be the sole survivor of the worst Air-crash that ever happened in Malaysia. Nobody is quite sure how I could survive. Physicist will tell us that any fall above 2000 feet, it will reach the terminal velocity of 120 miles per hour, which means we will die once we hit. However, according to government, there are two factors that made me survived from the crash. First, the drag on the tail section of the plane was sufficient to apparently cause the object to spiral down below terminal velocity. And the second, the part of the plane where I was in, during the crash, hit at angle on the side of Gunung Ledang and continued to travel down and thus not all of the momentum was stopped at once. But for me, the only reason how I could survive from the crash is, the strength that I got when my late-father came and kissed me during the accident. ...read more.
