'The Final Destination' Now 'Based on Actual Events'.

Another case of life imitates art--assuming you consider the premise of the you-can't-cheat-death horror franchise Final Destination art:

A woman who dodged death when she and her husband narrowly missed Air France Flight 447 before it plunged into the Atlantic Ocean, killing all 228 aboard, was killed in a car accident just over a week later.
An Air France airliner carrying 228 people from Brazil to Paris crashed into the Atlantic after a possible lightning strike.

Johanna Ganthaler a retiree from the Bolzano-Bozen province, was on vacation in Brazil with her husband Kurt when the pair miraculously missed the doomed flight to Paris. But their luck ran out on an Austrian road earlier this week when their car swerved into the path of an oncoming truck outside the town of Kufstein, the Times (U.K.) reported.

If you're wondering how it feels to make light of a woman's tragic fate just to make a mildly-amusing comparison to a terrible film series, the answer is not that great. I rationalize it with the thinking that, if I'm ever murdered by a skeletal metal android from the future, I'd be alright with people drawing the logical parallels.
