It will always be a sad day to remember, when a plane caring a Brazilian football team Chapecoense crashed. According to one of the six survivors, Chapecoense centre back, Helio Neto, who survived the Colombian plane crash which killed 71, he said he was reading a Bible passage about ‘being safe in the shadow of your wings’ before the crash. The footballer’s bible was found at the scene of the crash by journalist Roberto Cabrini.
In a video footage Cabrini notices the Bible with a note inside saying it belongs to the defender.
A bookmark had been inserted next to Psalm 63. It reads;
‘On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night; Because you have been my help; Then I will rejoice in the shadow of your wings. My soul follows you closely; Your right hand upholds me.”
The bible was handed to the footballer’s wife, who said that Neto is deeply religious and takes religious scriptures with him everywhere.
A total of 71 people lost their lives when the British-made Avro RJ85 aircraft came down en route to Medellin, where Brazilian side Chapecoense were due to play in the Copa Sudamericana final.
