Looks like this woman brought misfortune — instead of good fortune — to the other passengers of Tianjin Airlines.
A 66-year old woman surnamed Wang got arrested after throwing 6 pieces of coins at the plane’s engine to pray for a safe trip. The old woman was then placed under administrative detention for 10 days. The flight was delayed for two hours, but it managed to take off, and the passengers reached their destination safely. Well, at least her prayer worked.
From Shanghai.ist :
Fortunately, the coins were noticed by a worker. When an announcement was made for the thrower of the coins to step forward, Wang remained seated. However, she was revealed as the culprit by surveillance footage.
This is now at least the seventh time that this kind of thing has happened in China in the past two years. Somehow, it’s only becoming more and more frequent.
I just hope people would trust airplanes more.
