Air France 447

This story is soo amazing to me!! What is even more intriguing is what will this 13-year-old go on to do!! GOD’s awesome providence is definitely over her life. To me this is just more tangible proof that GOD is in Loving Control. You will not leave this earth until he has determined that your purpose has been fulfilled. Wow!! What an Awesome God we have!!! The sole survivor of Air France flight 447 is 13 year old Bahia Bakari. Her mother and 227 other passengers did not survive the plane crash into the Indian Ocean. More details are emerging about the actual crash as time goes on. However the authorities are sure the weather was very bad with winds up to 38 mph, the sea was also very rough. Apparently the plan dove directly into the water and did not break up until after the impact, which is actually unusual. They are still actively locating the wreckage and bodies of the victims. The authorities will then attempt to determine what really happened. However this posting is going to focus on the known details of Bahia’s survival. The following is her father’s statement about her survival.

"She didn't feel a thing. She found herself in water
," Kassim Bakari told French radio RTL after speaking to his 13-year-old daughter Bahia who was recovering Wednesday in a hospital in Moroni.
"She said she was ejected from the plane," Bakari said.
"When I had her on the phone, I asked her what happened and she said, 'Daddy, I don't know what happened, but the plane fell into the water and I found myself in the water ... surrounded by darkness. I could not see anyone,'" Bakari said.
"She could hear people talking, but in the middle of the night she couldn't see a thing. She managed to hold on to a piece of something,"
She is a very, very shy girl. I would never have thought she would have survived like this. I can't say that it's a miracle, I can say that it is God's will, said Bakari,"

Bahia lives in Marseille, she only suffered with cuts to her face, and a fractured collar bone. The surgeon said "Her health is not in danger. She is very calm given the shock she suffered,"
The authorities attempted to throw a life buoy. She could not grab it. They had to jump in the water to get her," "She was shaking, shaking. They put four covers on her and gave her hot, sugary water.
The head of the rescue team in the Comoros also told RTL the teenager survived astonishing odds. "It is truly, truly, miraculous," said Ibrahim Abdoulazeb. "The young girl can barely swim."

Kassim Bakari said his daughter had been told her mother survived the crash. "When I spoke to her she was asking for her mother. They told her she was in a room next door, so as not to traumatize her. But it's not true. I don't know who is going to tell her.
