Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
Are you asking if you have a defence?
You could argue that this amounts to an "unavoidable cause" and so you would have a defence if you prove that was the reason for the absence.
I'm not sure it is the best defence to be wholly honest but it is arguable.
Can I clarify anything for you?
