Flight crashed in Indian Ocean, no survivors likely
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razar said Monday that a new analysis of electronic data shows that the missing Malaysian airlines with 239 people aboard went down in a remote area of the Indian ocean and indicated there were no survivors.
Malaysian airlines, in a statement, said flatly, “We have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board have survived.”
Razar said further analysis of data that earlier had sketched a possible flight path now finds that the plane flew along a southern corridor west of Perth, Australia.
“This is a remote location, far from any possible landing site,” he said in a brief, televised statement. “It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that according to this new data flight MH370 3 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.” (USA Today)
