Traveling by air may be necessary, but it’s not always pleasant. In fact, the sheer struggle of making sure all family members are packed ready for the trip – not to mention the extensive line that often greets you at check-in – may mean that you’re stressed out even before you sit down in your seat. And after David Darrow boarded a flight in July 2019, he was certainly very far from calm. When the captain of the plane began to address the passengers, though, he announced that one traveler wouldn’t make it home alive – ultimately causing Darrow to burst into tears.
So it certainly wasn’t a case of first-flight nerves – as Darrow frequently travels across the U.S. by plane. Yet the passenger may not have expected to become emotional on his trip. On this particular occasion, then, he was jetting from Phoenix, Arizona, to Charlotte, North Carolina, on a journey that took place just before the Fourth of July weekend. And before take-off, it’s fair to say that Darrow wasn’t in the best of moods.
