Istanbul nightclub attack: Rita Chami’s “prediction”

The Lebanese Ministry of Communications confirmed that Rita Chami was among the victims of the attack.

Chami, who recently lost her mother to cancer, posted on her Facebook account:

Hopefully we will have fun [in Turkey], worst case scenario is that I will die in a blast and follow my mum.

A coincidence or an accurate prediction of her future, the 26-year-old, reportedly died in the arms of her fiance Elias Wardini–especially relevant that Wardini also died in the incident. (via Daily Mail)

Her Facebook page is memorialized, while cousin Ziad posted about her death:

Dearest Rita Chami may you rest in peace in the heavens with the angels and your lovely mum. We will miss you cuz.

Karcilar, married, and also has a 3-year-old daughter. It is still not clear if Karcilar was working as a security guard on the night of the attack but it is possible. Probably because the club’s Facebook page posted a photo of her and three other victims: “Thank God for our friends who lost [their lives] in the treacherous attack.”
