הרבה שלוחים למקום

I'm not sure what to make of this story. It's pretty scary.

VIN News:
Kufstein, Austria - An Italian woman who arrived late for the Air France plane flight that crashed in the Atlantic last week has been killed in a car accident.

Johanna Ganthaler, a pensioner from Bolzano-Bozen province, had been on holiday in Brazil with her husband Kurt and missed Air France Flight 447 after turning up late at Rio de Janeiro airport on May 31.

All 228 people aboard lost their lives after the plane crashed into the Atlantic four hours into its flight to Paris.

The couple had managed to pick up a flight from Rio the following day. But Ms Ganthaler died when their car veered across a road in Kufstein, Austria, and swerved into an oncoming truck. Her husband was seriously injured.


Possible Lessons:
  • הרבה שלוחים למקום
  • Hashem wanted a way to keep the husband alive somehow, so He made this possible in this way
  • Be thankful and humbled for the miracles done on your behalf - you never know how soon you'll need another
  • Perhaps, this woman had a special zechut that kept her alive a bit longer and allowed for a proper burial of her body
  • When we say מי באש מי במים on ראש השנה, we should understand that these things are really determined, and she was obviously not determined to die במים

Or of course, it possibly could be totally random. We won't know for certain until after we die; maybe...
