BREAKING NEWS! MH370 Plane: ‘Crashed At Sea – No Survivors!’ (Video)
“It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you..” ~ Prime Minister of Malaysia
This Just In!
With grim face, Malaysian prime minister: Najib Razak, had an emergency news conference Monday saying that the long-missing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370: “ended in the southern Indian Ocean” with no hope of survivors. Needless to say, this news has come to a severe shock to the families of those on board the plane, and perplexing to everyone else.
Here is Prime Minister Razak’s Full Statement:
This evening I was briefed by representatives from the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB). They informed me that Inmarsat, the UK company that provided the satellite data which indicated the northern and southern corridors, has been performing further calculations on the data. Using a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort, they have been able to shed more light on MH370’s flight path.
Based on their new analysis, Inmarsat and the AAIB have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth.
This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.
We will be holding a press conference tomorrow with further details. In the meantime, we wanted to inform you of this new development at the earliest opportunity. We share this information out of a commitment to openness and respect for the families, two principles which have guided this investigation.
Malaysia Airlines have already spoken to the families of the passengers and crew to inform them of this development. For them, the past few weeks have been heartbreaking; I know this news must be harder still. I urge the media to respect their privacy, and to allow them the space they need at this difficult time.
Families of the passengers had been gathered together in Kuala Lumpur and in Beijing ahead of the news conference, and there were unconfirmed reports that families had been offered a charter flight to Australia. Reports out of Beijing say paramedics rushed to the Lido Hotel to help family members who might be overcome with grief.
Until this very end, some held out faint hope that the flight, which disappeared March 8 on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, might have been hijacked, with the passengers being held somewhere for ransom. It appears that hope, or the belief by the public and concerned Nations at large, has now been crashed against the rocks and might be gone forever.
