Sunday, 23rd May 2010
Netizentwo was 17-year-old Harshini Poonja, who was flying home to Mangalore with her family for a wedding. Fate, however, had other plans. Harshini along with mother Manirekha, an employee of Gulf News and her father were among the 158 killed in the Air India Express flight IX-812 that crashed at Mangalore airport early Saturday morning.
The aircraft plunged into a valley after overshooting the runway.
Harshini's final tweet (twitter entry) made from her mobile before she took her flight read "At the airport and blah =_= Only thing to look forward to is the rain'. After this she boarded the ill-fated Boeing 737-800, flying maximum capacity.
