Andrew Palau and Family Safe After Plane Crash in Kingston, Jamaica
By Luis Palau Ministries,
Andrew and Wendy Palau and their three children, Christopher, Jonathan and Sadie, were passengers on American Airlines Flight 331 that skidded off the runway and crashed in Kingston, Jamaica on Tuesday night, December 22. The Palaus were traveling to Jamaica for the Christmas holidays to visit Wendy’s Jamaican family.
The Palaus were among the 148 passengers and six crew members who miraculously survived the crash, escaping with minor injuries. The plane skidded across the runway in a blinding rainstorm before breaking apart into three sections just a few feet from the Caribbean Sea. The Palaus were seated behind an exit row and managed to escape the plane by jumping onto the wing and then onto the wet sand. The family lost all of their belongings and documents.
Luis Palau said, “We are grateful to the Lord that no one on the flight suffered any life-threatening injuries. Andrew has a couple black eyes from hitting his head during the crash, but we are extremely thankful the family was not seriously hurt.”
