After 16 days of agony, our nation mourned after the announcement made by the Prime Minister at 9:55 pm, Monday night.
"Using a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort... Inmarsat and the AAIB have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth. This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean."
Just before he spoke at the press conference, family members were first notified by the Malaysia Airlines about the news through phone calls and SMS.
"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."
It is a devastating and a heartbreaking news for all of us. An unsolved mystery.
My thoughts and prayers have been with them since day one. Let's continue praying for the souls and may they all rest in peace.
Goodbye MH370. Good night.
