He posted a picture of himself with his wife and child as the flight took off from Dubai. Covered in white suite and a shield and mask covering them, they seem to be all protected and safe. He captioned this picture of his on Facebook, “Going to home.” Little did they know that it would end up being tragic. Sharafu lost his life at the Baby Memorial Hospital.

A native of Kunnamangalam in Kozhikode, 35-year-old Sharafu was flying home with his wife Ameena Sherin and daughter Isa Fathima from Dubai.

“Before he left to Kerala, he came to my hotel to say goodbye. He was upset and said, ‘I don’t know why but I feel tensed about going back home,’. I almost feel like he had a premonition about what would happen. He gave me money and told me to use it to give food to those who are stranded and those who don’t have jobs,” Shafi wrote.

15 passengers are severely injured and 123 are injured in the accident.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has tweeted with regards to the incident. “Pained by the plane accident in Kozhikode. My thoughts are with those who lost their loved ones.
