Karma subscribers are convinced that one of the Dutch passengers killed in Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 this morning sealed his fate by cracking a joke about missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 before boarding.

Shortly before the Boeing 777 was shot down, Facebook user Cor Pan wrote underneath a picture of the aircraft:

In case we go missing, here’s what it looks like.

The user was one of the 295 people onboard the flight traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

It’s unclear how many people were killed when the plane was initially struck by a ground-to-air missile or when it crashed right outside the Ukrainian city of Donestsk, occupied by rebels seeking to become a part of Russia.
