THE HAGUE (AFP/BBC News) - A nine-year-old Dutch boy is stable in hospital after becoming the sole survivor of the Libyan Afriqiyah Airways plane from Johannesburg, which disintegrated on landing at Tripoli airport on Wednesday. This boy - sole survivor of the plane crash that killed 103 people, lost his parents and brother in a horrific end to a dream African safari, officials said Thursday. Identified by the foreign ministry only as Ruben, he was visited a day after the crash by an aunt and uncle flown into Tripoli by the Dutch government, and smiled when he saw them, said the foreign ministry. “He was of course after the disaster he experienced, after the great loss of his parents and brother, happy to see two familiar faces at his bedside,” Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen told journalists. “His condition is stable but it is not yet possible to transport him.” The ministry refused to reveal the surname of the boy, who hails from the southern city of Tilburg, to protect the family's privacy.

The Brabants Daily quoted his grandmother An van de Sande as saying the boy had been on a South African safari with his brother Enzo, 11, mother Trudy, 41, and father Patrick, 40, to celebrate the couple's copper wedding anniversary - marked in the Netherlands after 12.5 years. “We don't understand. It's like we're in a film,” Van de Sande said. Verhagen confirmed that the survivor's father, mother and 11-year-old brother were among 70 Dutch citizens who perished. “The child underwent several rounds of surgery to his legs. He had simple fractures and double fractures,” the doctor said on Libyan state television, which also showed pictures of the boy's legs in casts.

There were 103 people killed and only one survivor. The experts don’t have conclusive answers, but they suggested that your placement in the airplane is key for surviving a crash. They do not want to recognize that above all their mental speculations, there is One Supreme Controller.

As stated, no one can protect the person whom Krishna is prepared to kill, and no one can kill the person whom Krishna protects.

Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is omnipotent, and if He wants to kill someone, no one can save that person. Similarly, if He wants to save someone, no one can kill him.
