Woman describes how dead MH17 passenger fell through her kitchen roof

The crash of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has become an international incident. For now, investigators are searching the crash scene for evidence. Authorities hope to find out who is responsible for the terrorist attack. In the movies, whenever a plane crashes, the plane and its passengers disintegrate. In reality, whenever a plane explodes, the pieces fall from the sky. Today, The Washington Post reported a story about a Ukrainian woman who experienced her own experience from the crash.

A Ukrainian woman named Inna Tipunova said that after the plane had exploded, a dead woman’s body fell from the plane and crashed through her kitchen ceiling. Tipunova and other witnesses said they saw bodies and wreckage falling from the sky. Tipunova said the deceased woman’s dead body destroyed her kitchen. Even worse, the deceased body remained in her home for 24 hours before anyone recovered it. Tipunova found the scene so disturbing that she continuously returned to her kitchen to examine the scene. She blamed the Ukrainian government for destroying the jet.

On July 17, a missile struck and destroyed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. The flight had left Amsterdam and was on its way to Kuala Lumpur. The plane then crashed into a cornfield and killed all 298 passengers. Various sources reported that tattered bodies and their personal belongings littered the area. Another witness said he saw a dead pilot still strapped into his seat. The witness said the cockpit rested on a hill.

Moreover, The International Business Times (IBT) reported that looters have descended on the scene and stolen personal items belonging to the dead. Thieves reportedly stole credit cards, cash and jewelry. The IBT website has released the names of the 298 victims. At least one passenger had an American connection; Indiana University doctoral student Karlijn Keijzer, 25, died in the crash.
