LONDON: A Facebook post by a Greek man Antonis Mavropoulos on Sunday restored the faith of many people in God and his miracles. Mavropoulos was supposed to be a passenger aboard the Ethiopian Airlines, Boeing 737 that crashed on Sunday, March 10.

The Ethiopian Airlines was heading from Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital towards Nairobi in Kenya and crashed just six minutes after take-off.

The Boeing 737 MAX had 149 passengers and eight crew members. No survivors were reported in the plane crash.

Mavropoulos could have been the 150th passenger among those killed in the unfortunate incident, but was lucky enough to miss the flight.

Mavropoulos who is the president of the non-profit International Solid Waste Association, was scheduled to attend the annual assembly of the UN Environment Programme, according to Athens News Agency.

He posted his ticket to Nairobi on Facebook and shared his emotions at missing his flight at the last moment. He felt lucky that his life was saved by missing the ill-fated plane.

In his Facebook post, titled My lucky day, Mavropoulos philosophised life as a knitted web of unplanned circumstances.
