Malaysia PM - Flight MH370 Crashed in the South Indian Ocean

Posted in: , ,

Malaysia Airlines has sent a text message to the affected families announcing the loss of their plane missing since the beginning of the month. "Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived... we must now accept all evidence suggests the plane went down in the Southern Indian Ocean."

The Malaysian prime minister also made the same announcement to reporting saying, "It is with deep sadness and regret, that according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean."

According to the BBC, Najib Razak said this was the conclusion of fresh analysis of satellite data tracking the flight.

Flight MH370 disappeared after taking off on 8 March from Kuala Lumpur.

The announcement by PM Najib Razak, at a late-night news conference, came on the fifth day of an international search effort in the southern Indian Ocean.

Based on new analysis, the UK's Air Accidents Investigation Branch and Inmarsat, the UK company that provided satellite data, "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," Mr Razak said.

"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."

Mr Razak appealed to the media to respect the privacy of the families of the passengers and crew, saying the wait for information had been heartbreaking and this latest news harder still.

At least this will provide closure for the families who had relatives in the plane. May they be comforted and their souls rest in peace. Amen.
