Young traveler Miguel Panduwinata had an eerie premonition of MH17’s fatal crash a few days before the doomed flight, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
Miguel, his older brother Shaka, and his older brother Mika, were all planning to fly to Bali to visit their grandmother, according to the Omaha World Herald. The 10-year-old’s mother, Samira Calehr, says that the well-traveled lad was uncharacteristically anxious before the trip. The day before the flight, while playing soccer near their home in Amsterdam, Miguel is said to have blurted out:
”How would you choose to die? What would happen to my body if I was buried? Would I not feel anything because our souls go back to God?”
The next day, just before boarding the plane, Miguel rushed back to his mother to hug her one more time.
“Mama, I’m going to miss you. What will happen if the airplane crashes?”
Both Miguel and his brother would be dead within hours.
Several people are reported (and the word “reported” needs to be stressed, because individual experiences, especially of a paranormal nature, are impossible to verify) to have had eerie premonitions of disaster – plane crashes in particular. For example, according to Listverse:
- In 1970, David Booth had nightmares every night, over the course of ten days, of an airplane flipping over and bursting into flames. He even notified the FAA. Shortly after, American Airlines Flight 191 crashed after takeoff, flipping over and bursting into flames. All 273 aboard died.
- Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Jo Jo Billingsley claimed that she had a premonition of the plane crash that killed many of her bandmates, the day before the crash.
- And according to Free Republic, the widow of a United Flight 93 victim says that her husband also had dreams and visions of a plane crash ending his life.
In other MH17 eerie coincidence-related news, the story of Dutch cyclist Maarten De Jonge, who reports said cheated death twice by avoiding ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flights (see this Inquisitr article), is a little more mundane. As Slate reports, the rumors of De Jonge twice cheating death resulted from misunderstanding, poor translation, and the rumor mill. De Jonge never had tickets, or reservations, for either MH17 flight. He has since stopped talking about it.
“Out of respect for the victims and their survivors, I don’t think it’s suitable for me to step into the foreground with my story, something I never intended to do anyway.”
