terrible tragedy

What I find a bit grim is the request that says :

"Have you been affected by the Greek air disaster? Do you live near the scene of the crash or have any information about how it happened? "

I noticed the same on the London bombs story at the time.
Bit gruesome IMO

How tragic. News report on TV said that just over 40 of the victims were children

Update on this on TV todays says that most, if not all, passengers would have been dead before the crash impact. Some solace for the victims families I hope.

The emergency oxygen failed - autopsies revealed many were unconscious before the crash.

16 people from the village ( I live on an Army camp) next to us (not even 5 mins ) died in this crash they were 3 families we have had all our Flags at half mast out of respect for the locals.

How horrible.

Seems there are questions about how this happened - lots of things not adding up atm?

No it isn't . my cousin is flying out to see me today (17th) and her and her dd are flying out with Helios!!!.

My dd is flying home with BA at the end of the week, after all this so far this week I will be a nervous wreck all the time she is in the air...

My DD is flying home with BA at the end of the week too, ll.

Has been an incredibly bad few weeks - see here and this doesn't even mention the Canadian one (because nobody died, presumably. Still a nasty crash though.)

But did we hear about the Guinea one? Or Kabul? I don't remember them.
