Well it's a good thing nobody "important" good hurt or killed because that would have been tragic.
We are in no way implying anything of the sort, if that's what you're insinuating.
Baffles me that media feel the need to do pieces like this. Are we supposed to feel sympathetic that she was supposed to be on that flight but at the last minute got on a different one? Like its of any importance that the world knows. "Oh, Facebook COO nearly died today, lets all gather around and say a prayer for her" - people should be ashamed.
I completely disagree, given the context. It's not about a feeling of sympathy for the person who escaped tragedy. Rather, this is a tech oriented site, and the fact that a major player in the tech industry nearly boarded a flight that crashed is, to me (and many others, considering the story was trending on Google), interesting. It's a similar concept to knowing someone personally who escaped a major catastrophe, only in this sense, we 'know' Sandberg as a tech figure.
Anyone viewing a piece like this as a slight against the unfortunate folks who were actually on the plane when it crashed, especially the two young people who perished, is taking it in the wrong context. We're saddened it happened, regardless of who was on the plane.
Sorry, Paul, «boarded a flight that crashed» is news, «almost boarded a flight that crashed» is not news....
