It has been 17 days since the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370. On March 24, ABC News reported airline officials have said there will be no anticipated survivors of the flight originally headed for Beijing.
Malaysia Airline officials are stating that they have enough evidence to assume flight 370 went down somewhere in the Southern Indian Ocean. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak held a press conference on Monday where he told families of the passengers the news.
Family members who had gathered to hear the announcement screamed in protest. Many denounced the message that their family members were no longer alive. Many believe the plane did not crash and that their loved ones are very much alive. They believe news that the plane crashed into the Indian Ocean is made up and that there is some sort of conspiracy.
It is also being reported that family of the passengers were informed of the press conference by text message or e-mail. The reported message states:
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. As you will hear in the next hour from Malaysia’s Prime Minister, we must now accept all evidence suggests the plane went down in the Southern Indian Ocean.
Without actually finding the wreckage or any of the victims, it seems rather early to declare the plane crashed into the ocean. What are your thoughts on Malaysia Airlines flight 370? Do you believe the plane was hijacked as originally thought? Did the plane crash into the ocean? What happened to this flight that certainly diverted from the original flight path?
