The look in this ice hockey goalie’s eyes says it all. He’s super glad he’s wearing that caged mask, right now. Although he does still look a little concerned like maybe it was going to slip through the cage and hit him in the face anyways.
Let’s be honest though – everyone knows that hockey is a brutally violent sport. People literally go to hockey games to see guys kick each other’s butts on the ice. So why does this goalie look like he’s so surprised?
The Plane Crash That Took the Whole Team
It was quite a tragedy for the sports community in November 2016. A Brazilian-based football team, Atletico Chapecoense, was going to a championship match in Medellin, Colombia. They booked a chartered airplane and snapped this picture in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, where they were laid off, prior to embarking on their concluding flight. Many other team members eagerly posted their images on social media accounts prior to taking off. They would never be heard of again.
The captain called the emergency room, stating an electricity outage. Soon after, the airplane hurtled into the mountains, taking out 71 people. Initially, there were 6 survivors, but subsequently, one more player succumbed to injuries at the medical center. This accident occurred as a result of extremely low fuel levels and a delayed emergency landing. In all, the flight was poorly planned.
The Deadly Air Disaster
On Jan 7, 2012, a hot air balloon hit a high voltage electricity chord and viciously burst into flames when trying to make a landing. It hurtled towards the north of New Zealand city, Carterton, executing 10 travelers along with the pilot. It was the deadliest air catastrophe to take place in New Zealand since the year 1963.
The accident occurred due to an error of judgment on the pilot’s part; he was found to be under the influence of cannabis at the time of the tragic event.
The Guitarist's Last Performance
Darrell Lance Abbott, also known as “Dimebag Darrell”, was the song composer and guitar player of the metal group Pantera. During a show on December 8th, 2004, show, Marine Nathan Gale rushed to the stage and lethally shot Dimebag Darrell. He murdered three others as well.
Fans performed CPR on the much-loved guitarist, but the damage had been done and he was declared dead in the arena. Darrell was 38 years old when he was killed when performing on stage at Columbus in Ohio in the United States.
The Assassination That Sparked Controversy
On Nov 22nd, 1963, a convoy was ferrying President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy and they were going to Dallas. This is the last photo snapped of JFK while he was living. He was hit by gunshots and murdered by assassin Harvey Lee Oswald, who was stationed at the school book archive building, after a couple of minutes.
As the motorcade was passing through Dealey Plaza, the President was murdered. Kennedy died from 2 gunshots in the upper part of his body. It was reported that Oswald acted on his own, but conspiracy theorists believe he had allies.
