    12 hours flight can be daunting, he might have medical conditions that he himself might not be aware of. Dehydration,blood clot, heart and sinuses problems are some of in flight problems whereby the passenger can become confused, experience seizure/collapse.In view of these I can only advice us to make sure we stay hydrated by drinking fluid, try and move about from time to time, we can get a support Hose, compression socks to guide against the risk of blood clot. Lastly, for those that lives abroad, kindly make sure you’re off work couple of days before departure because I’ve seen people travelling on their last day in work barely leaving time to refresh saying they will relax on board- This can be catastrophe.
    May God comfort his family and Grant the Departed Eternal Rest;Amen.

    We don’t have to second-guess what killed people. It is appointed for man to die once. Death is the destiny of every man (and woman). Everyone has their appointed time to die. Death is the ONLY appointment you cannot miss, cannot reschedule, cannot be late. So, how do we explain those who did not wake up from sleep today? Only God determines when it is time to die. Let us not aggravate the agony of the families of the dead by guessing what killed them. I pray that the family of the dead find consolation in God’s word and their memories of times spent together. Peace be upon the souls of the deceased.

    There are some death classified as accidental/avoidable. Sharing basic safety tips might come in handy in an unexpected circumstances. A man got saved by remembering a survival trick he had seen used by US Navy;Google ‘Tourist lost at sea for 3hrs’.
    What would be will be surely but powers and principalities can turn a 40 days journey to 40 years journey. May our journey in life not cut short in Jesus Mighty Name.
    Lastly, No Knowledge is lost because Knowledge is Power.
