Not quite right - he posted the occurrence of the accident stating that,
according to his source "200 feared dead" which is indeed the initial status
of the crash announcements.

That no one died and only 43 (or 22 depending on whom you believe) were
sufficiently injured to require formal medical attention, was the miracle.
Certainly anyone observing the crash initially would have leapt to the same
