What happened minutes before the crash has shocked everyone.

Neto was reading Psalm 63, which says: "On my bed I remember You; I think of You through the watches of the night; Because You have been my help; Then I will rejoice in the shadow of your wings."

Neto is known as being a man of faith who constantly carries his Bible.

"Itís the first thing he takes when he travels," Neto's wife Simone told the Daily Mail after she retrieved the Bible from the crash site.

The tattered Bible was sprawled open in the middle of the mangled remains of the plane. Neto's bookmark was still at Psalm 63—the last words he read before impact.

Doctors still describe Neto's condition as "delicate" and he must undergo surgery on his lungs, knees, skull and wrists.

His family is praying for a full recovery.
