Brazilian Soccer Team Plane Crash Survivor: Despite Leg Amputation, Jackson Follmann’s Survival Was A ‘Miracle From God’

The family of Jackson Follmann, one of the survivors of the tragic Brazilian soccer team plane crash, considers this as “Miracle From God”.

Despite the tragic plane crash that killed most of the passengers aboard, Jackson’s family has expressed their thankfulness for his survival. Jackson, a goalkeeper for the Brazilian soccer club Chapecoense, had his right leg amputated after sustaining serious injuries.

Jackson Follmann: Thankful, But Feeling Anguished

His father, Paulo Follmann, told the Associated Press via the Chronicle Herald, that they are still thankful even if his son has lost one of its legs. The older Follman, however, said they still don’t have any idea of his exact condition.

“The chances of surviving an airplane crash are practically zero. That my son is one of the survivors is a miracle of God. We have not spoken to him or received any other information regarding how serious his condition is. That is making us feel anguished,” the older Follman told AP over the phone.

Other Survivors

The younger Follmann is one of the six Flight LMI2933 passengers who miraculously survived the crash. The charter plane crashed in a mountainous part of Columbia. The Columbian Aviation Authority noted that 71 individuals have died from the crash.

Meanwhile, Follmann’s teammate, Defender Helio Neto has undergone skull surgery after sustaining serious injury from the crash. Another passenger survivor, Alan Ruschel, was operated on his spine. Ruschel was the first survivor identified by responding authorities, the Sun reported.
