Eastern Flight 401

One of those empty seats was mine. I had spent Christmas with my family in Connecticut and had a reservation to return to Miami on Flight 401. The day of the flight, my family convinced me to stay another few days to greet the New Year with them. We were absolutely stunned beyond belief to learn of the crash the next day. It still gives me goosebumps to this day when I realize how close I came to being on that flight. My surgeon and friend on Key Biscayne was one of the doctors working the crash scene. Words failed him to describe the carnage. That coming from a surgeon. My heartfelt prayers went then and still go now to all involved.
