One of the people on the plane was a 9/11 widow. She won the effing lottery in this life didn't she?
Actually, the odds of a close family member of a 9/11 victim dying in a plane crash within 10 years of 9/11 is probably pretty statistically significant.
I would bet it's not. I'm terrible with stats, but according to wiki the odds are 53 million to 1 average joes die in a plane crash. I have no idea how do to the math, but even with 3500 people dying on 9/11 and assuming family size of 4 people in the immediate family that adds up to south of 15000 total people in that demographic. I'm not sure that 15,000 is a large enough number to roll into that 53 million odds number to significantly increase those odds.
But, like I said, I have no idea how you would arrive at that.
Also, I didn't necessarily mean my comment from that perspective. Just that she (and hers) had already been through more tragedy than anyone should have to deal with...and now this.
