Colliding with death at 37,000 feet, and living

Aircraft collision in Brazil.New York Times has just released a first person account of the recent aircraft collision in Brazil from one of the survivors. Here is a snippet:

“With the window shade drawn, I was relaxing in my leather seat aboard a $25 million corporate jet that was flying 37,000 feet above the vast Amazon rainforest. The 7 of us on board the 13-passenger jet were keeping to ourselves.

Without warning, I felt a terrific jolt and heard a loud bang, followed by an eerie silence, save for the hum of the engines.”
