Unbelievable luck

A survivor of the Dubai plane crash in 2016 has been hailed the world’s luckiest man after winning $1m in a lottery six days later.

Mohamed Basheer Abdul Khadar was one of 300 passengers and crew who narrowly escaped after an Emirates plane crash-landed and exploded on 3 August.

He won the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire lottery.

Mr Khadar, 61, an Indian from the state of Kerala, was returning to Dubai after the Muslim Eid holiday.
