Brazilian Soccer Team Crash Survivor Alan Ruschel: Player Begged For Wedding Ring, Did Fiance Know LAMIA Plane Would Crash?

Alan Ruschel is one of only six people who survived the Brazilian soccer team crash, which took the lives of more than 70. With his miraculous survival, he proved his ultimate love for his fiancé.

The Chapecoense soccer team was headed to play the finals of Copa Sudamerica against Athletico Nacional. Their plane never made it to its destination, Medellin city in Colombia.

The plane experienced electrical malfunction and headed straight for a mountain 10 km south of the Medellin airport. Seventy-one people died on impact, including most players and some staff and journalists.

Alan Ruschel, 27, was one of the survivors. He was pulled out by one of the local volunteers Santiago Campuzano after being pointed out by a 10-year-old.

Despite having sustained serious injuries, the left-back was not concerned about his failing health.

“My family, my friends… where are they?” Those were the first words that came out of his mouth, reported the Daily Mail. It is often heard that one does not really know who or what matters the most in one’s life, until that person is staring death in the face.

And having done just that, Alan Ruschel had one request to the volunteer attending to him at the hospital: “Save my wedding ring,” as reported by Aleteia.

Since Ruschel was not yet married, it could only mean he was soon going to propose to his fiancé, Marina Storchi. There could not have been a greater test for the footballer’s love for his fiancé.

Indescribably, Marina seems to have had a premonition of some kind before Ruschel’s plane took off, reported BBC citing a Brazilian article. She told her fiancé not to go, because he apparently could not locate his passport anywhere in the house.

Doctors have concluded that Ruschel is in stable condition and has “normal movements in upper and lower limbs.” However, he still has to go through intensive spinal surgery. It is too early to tell if Ruschel will be able to play football again.
