Boy died in Venezuela Plane Crash
I was very shocked when I read this news item. A boy, Thomas Horne, died in a plane crash. He was only six years old. I think it is very sad, especially for his parents. One person has died and nine other passengers are badly injured. These injured passengers have been brought to the nearest hospital, Cuidad Bolivar.
The tour operator First Choice, who organised this trip, is also very shocked and expressed their heartfelt sympathy. They started an investigation into this accident. The flights with aircraft operator LTA has been suspended till after this investigation, because First Choice stands for safety.
The parents of Thomas are still alive but they have very bad injuries. I think it is terrible to lose your child. Someone told me once: “If you lose both of your parents, you will be called an orphan. If you lose your husband, you will be called a widow. If you lose your wife, you will be called a widower. If you lose your child, there does not exist a word to describe this situation.” He is right. This shows us that losing a child in death is unnatural and should not happen. I cannot agree more.
