‘Police sat me down and told me I was lucky’.. mzungu narrates missing Ethiopian airline flight by two minutes

A Greek national who was late to board the doomed Ethiopian airline that crushed on Sunday has revealed he missed the flight.

The man according to multiple reports said he was only two minutes late but the crew of the flight would not let him in.

He felt so angry and shouted at them, reports further say.

The Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed around Bishoftu, or Debre Zeit, some 31 miles (50km) south of the Ethiopian capital, shortly after taking off at 8.38am local time on Sunday.

He wrote about his experience saying

I had my nerves because there was no one to help me go quickly. I lost it for two minutes when I arrived late, the boarding had been closed and I was looking at the last passenger on the belt to come in, he wrote on Facebook.

He added;

I was screaming to put me on but they did not allow it. Infact I missed the flight because I did not give a suitcase.

There were 149 passengers and eight crew on board flight ET302 which was heading for Nairobi, Kenya. There were no survivors.

The victims comprised more than 35 nationalities, the majority of whom were from Kenya, Canada, Ethiopia, China, Italy, the US, France, the UK, Egypt and Germany.
