And they say you can't take it with you!
In an article "Missing Asiana Pilot Took Out W3Bn in Insurance Before Crash," KBS World (June 30, 2011), the Korean Broadcasting System informs us of some rather unusual precautions on the part of the pilot:
The missing pilot of the Asiana Airlines cargo plane that crashed into waters west of Jeju Island on Thursday was found to have insurance policies worth three billion won.But only if he took out afterlife insurance policies!
Insurance sector officials say the pilot began to take out policies in June. He currently holds two life insurance policies and five damage insurance policies.
Insurance companies are looking into the matter, and if probe results by the Transport Ministry find nothing unusual in the cause of the crash, the pilot is expected to claim the money if he is found dead.
