A group of people are meant to die in a Philadelphia Skycraper smash up but are saved after a young woman has a premonition of the coming carnage.

The vision is triggered by a pop on news report regarding the six youths and a teacher of Mt. Abraham High School who stepped off the Volee Airlines plane Flight 180 just before it's explosion.

The group then however begin to die in a series of bizarre accidents which the visionary woman herself Claire DeLane associates as being caused by Death itself and as their body count rises she discovers all those who stepped off the Flight 180 before it's explosion seem to be dead apart from one woman named Clear Rivers who checked herself into the far away Long Island Stonybrook Institution.

Ultimatley it comes down to just Claire and Claire comes to Long Island to the Stonybrook Institution and admits herself just as Clear Rivers had done believing it to be the only way to ensure her survival.

It is then revealed that in connection to Final Destination 2 when Kimberley Corman of the Route 23 pile-up comes to see Clear the noise heard from one of the rooms on the same floor stating "No, No Get Her off me, get her off me," was indeed Claire seeing the omnipresent force Death coming for her in her room during a routine check up from her male Doctor Leonetti who is indeed the later used Laser Eye Doctor in Final Destination 5.

Claire had jumped onto Dr. Leonetti's back leading him into saying get her off me, get her off me and Death causing water to spill out from under his feet leads him into slipping her off out the room window to her death.

  4. Fiona Graham and Walter Piffle- Both killed in Norman's apartment elevator when the elevator stops and Norman crawls out onto the top to see the damage the spiky shaft roof above falls down and crushes Walter.

  5. Gina Truman: Killed at her parents house which she attempted to make Death Proof but death cutting out the oven and leaking gas into the house then breaks off a t.v electrical cord and latches it to the front door which upon Claire rushing to it and opening it causes the house to explode propelling her backwards onto her car windscreen and killing Gina within the house.
