Nigerian lady has taken to Twitter to narrate
how how fire was coming out from a
commercial flight she boarded yesterday.

The lady identified as Korie Tochi took to the
popular social media platform to narrate how a
local flight she boarded from Lagos to
Portharcourt yesterday, had fire coming out of
its engine. See what she wrote below;

So I almost died today. But apparently God
isn’t done with me yet. I know I’ll check out
one day but it will be in my 90s when I am
old, bent over and lost all my teeth.
I boarded @AzmanAir 9:30 am 3/1/2019,
Lagos to Portharcourt. I settled in between a
man in his mid 50s
And a girl of about 9yrs, some of her missing
teeth reminded me of my daughter Kamsi. I
looked out of the window and noticed I was
seated close to the engine. I sighed and
muttered “my ear go hear am today”. I also
noticed there where seemly more kids than
adults too.

This is going to be one very noisy flight. We
took off smoothly and I closed my eyes and
dozed off. I woke up to a tap by a flight
attendant. She made to give me a pack of
snacks, I declined. Not ready to spoil my
coffee and crossaint breakfast.
( this would have been my last breakfast). Was
about to close my ears again when I heard it,
the engine hit something… Must be a bird, the
plane vibrated slightly. I would have waved it
aside if the flight attendant didn’t come
peeping out the window. I follwed his gaze
and saw the smoke. WHAT!!!! Is this for real
And that was the beginning of our nightmare.

The plane started vibrating. The pilot annouced
we would land by 10:55 We neared the
runway,oya tyre come out, for where!!!We
went back up amidst vibrating plane and cries
of scared kids

The pilot tried 3 other times to land the plane
and it didn’t work. Na then I know say water
don pass garri. Fire was coming out of the
engine. I bent down and prayed for my kids. I
confessed my sins and asked God for
forgiveness. Sent my sis Luu and my closest
friend a text.

Didn’t go into details because i didn’t want
them to panick. A certain peace envloped me. I
was ready to die. I told myself Jeff knows
where all my important documents are. He will
answer any questions as I am about to die
without leaving a will.

. I closed my eyes and waited for the
inevitable to happen.

Then the plane turned a fifth time and faced
the run way. An elderly man got up and
implored all of us to start thanking God for the
miracle he was about to perform in our lives.
We all started screaming and shouting
“thank you Jesus”. I looked out the window and
we were nearing the runway again. I shut my
eyes and prayed vehemently that this will be it.
God please do it for my kids sake. God heard
us. The thud of the plane landing was the best
feeling ever. I wept.

Tears of gratitude. Everyone was crying. People
hugged each other. At that moment we were
one. Not Hausa or Igbo or Yoruba. Just a group
of people united in our fears and prayers. We
survived. We didn’t die. We alighted to the
jubilation of the Airport workers. They
witnessed it.

They were down there praying for us. Fire
service already poured water on the runway to
minimise the impact incase we crash landed.

God and the pilot’s expertise saved us.
God, who am i that you are mindful of me?

Please let me go and hug my children one
more time.
