Rescheduled Flight Saves Sheryl Sandberg From Plane Crash

An Asiana Airlines flight crash-landed at San Francisco International Airport yesterday. As a result of the crash-landing, two passengers have been reported dead whereas another 181 are injured. Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg was due to take the same plane, but by chance, switched to a United flight.

Naturally, it was simply great luck that Sandberg switched flights hours before the ill-fated Asiana flight crash-landed at the SF Airport. The flight that Sandberg switched to was returning from a Korean business trip and it landed a mere 20 minutes before the Asiana flight landed.

Apparently, Sandberg decided to switch flights to cash in air mile tickets for family members. A number of other Facebook executives were also with her, which means that they too avoided the crash simply because of a last-hour reschedule.

Among the chief passengers that were on board the plane that crash-landed was Samsung executive David Eun. Although a large number of passengers were injured as a result of the debacle, Eun tweeted after the incident that he was okay. According to him, “I just crash landed at SFO.¬†Tail ripped off. Most everyone seems fine. I’m ok. Surreal.”

He later reassured that most of the passengers on-board seem fine, “Just went through customs. Adrenaline rush is subsiding. Just trying to process all this. Really glad that most everyone I saw seemed ok, with just a few minor injuries. Thinking a lot about family and friends right now.”
