    The trauma of being alive after such a horrific crash was severe than being dead was the general opinion of the seven survivors of the Dubai-Mangalore Air India Express flight IX 812 that killed 158 passengers on May 22, 2010.
    While they were able to recount their trauma over the past one year after the crash, whereabouts of the eighth survivor is not known.All the seven survivors, Ummar Farooq of Ullal, Usman Puttur, Joel Pratap, Pradeep Kotian of Mangalore, Krishnan of Kasargod, Mayan Kutty of Kannur and another Krishnan also of Kannur, attribute only one reason for their survival in this horrific crash — they had unfastened their seat belts even when the first announcement of approaching Mangalore was being done by the flight attendants.
