Posted in: , , ,

Time and chance, they say, happens to us all. As more news about the crashed Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 come out, you want to simply break down and cry. The grief is overwhelming for the almost 300 people that died, and yet there are glimmers of relief for a few that were saved in one way or another.

Barry and Izzy Sim (above) were planning to travel to Kuala Lumpur with their young baby on Flight MH17 but were told by staff at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport that the plane was too full.

The family was then given seats on a later KLM flight, that would depart at a later time. The couple cancelled the KLM flight after the wife refused to fly when they heard that MH17 had crashed.

Barry Sim and his wife spoke of their reactions after he hearing the plane they so desperately wanted to board was shot down.

Posted in: , , , , ,

There has been a lot of frenzy over some pictures of Kate Middleton, and her husband Prince William, but they are continuing with their tour of the Far East.
