Malaysia Airlines Tells Families All Flight 370 Passengers Are Presumed Dead

The mystery of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 may be coming to an end soon and the airline has informed families of the 239 passengers that all of their loved ones are presumed dead.

Najib Razak, the prime minister of Malaysia, says that MH370 flew along the southern corridor and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

“It is with deep sadness and regret that new data (indicates) flight MH370 ended in the Southern Indian Ocean,” he said.

The news comes after some objects were found in the ocean west of Perth, Australia.

We send our thoughts and prayers to all who were affected by this tragedy.

i just think LOST is happening

@GGGive: Really bad joke. LOST is a TV show. This is real life.

This is sad news. But the question still remains how did it veer off course on a clear night to go down in the Indian Ocean..that’s what is unanswered.

Truly a sad news. My condolences to all family and friends that involve in flight 370.

I think they’re just LOST. Too soon?

# 6

Thoughts with the families. Beyond awful. . .

Very sad and tragic. My thoughts are with those who lost someone they loved.

@ForMe: I don’t think they were making a joke. While that may be a TV show, it wouldn’t be the first time someone was lost at sea in real life. If that was MY family on that plane, I wouldn’t look to their confirmation of finding parts of the plane in the ocean and them saying my family was probably dead and to just accept that and move on. I would go on my own search. I wouldn’t give up. That plane may very well be lost on someone island. You don’t know if it isn’t. I don’t know if it isn’t. The prime minister of Malaysia doesn’t know that it isn’t. If anyone knew anything 100%, we wouldn’t be having this discussion. No one knows 100% where those passengers are, therefore no one can solidly say they’re not alive and lost.

lost on some random island*

@EJ:

Hi. Indian ocean is 3600 m deep, which is 2.5/4 height of mount everest? Are you trying to be dramatic or really keen in diving 3600 m to find the plane? Yes it is devastating, but there’s a kid at malaysia who lost his dad at the plane and keep tweeting that his father is on the news and keep asking him to come back to see how the world is talking about him.

As much as i understand the loss of a family member, closure is sometimes what people need. If they come back alive, wouldn’t it be a much joyful event rather than agonizing and holding on to hope they might be alive but never getting any news? Yes they are alive, in our hearts. if it’s in an island good, if not let’s pray for the best

Would you like it if 3 years down the road you are still agonizing the “missing” family member? When you could have actually accepted the worst and place them in your prayers

I still can’t believe it…..

@nd: Hi, it’s easy to say it’s sad and they live forever in our hearts. But all the poor passengers were brought to death (let’s hope for miracle though) by some group or some events, don’t you think they are responsible for the many kids out there who lost their dads or moms? They have the rights to find out what actually happened and why it happened. We cannot just forget it or let go.

@smoothie: I agree. @nd may call me dramatic, but as someone who has lost many family members…sometimes with closure and sometimes without, it doesn’t change your pain. They could find their bodies and it would give closure but not end the pain. These families will suffer regardless. Forgive me for holding onto hope and for those families holding onto hope, but sometimes holding onto hope is the only thing that will get people through each day. I understand that it’s not probable they will find the plane in the Indian Ocean, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible their plane ended up elsewhere. I’m just saying that the prime minister can give the facts, but that doesn’t mean they need to tell the families to basically ‘just think of them as dead and move on’. It’s like “welp, we give up so that’s that.” There’s a way to deliver information, always. Words hold a huge impact to people.
