News briefing happening now in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Yesterday, in a late-evening press conference, Prime Minister Najib Razak broke off the sad news that they have accepted all the evidence based on Inmarsat data that Flight MH370 went down into Southern Indian Ocean and there were no survivors. Inmarsat is a British company that sent the data analysis.
About 46 ambulance were called in with stretchers for grieving and weeping relatives.
One Chinese woman was heard saying, “If my daughter is alive, I want to see her. If my daughter is dead, I want to see her body.”
Authorities speculated that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 flew off-course for 7 hours before it reached a remote body of water in the Indian Ocean. MH370 took off from Kuala Lumpur 0:41 on March 8 en route to Beijing. The last known message from the cockpit was ‘Alright. Good night‘ before the transponder went out at 1:07 and the last know military radar captured the last signal at 2:14. And then the world watched and waited for Malaysia Flight MH370’s homecoming. As days passed, all efforts bare no hard evidence, just clues and speculations.
During the first couple of days that the news had broken out to the media, some of the passengers’ relatives made phone calls in an attempt to contact their missing loved ones on board MH370. They even let the TV crews to record their phone calls that appeared to be ringing on national television. That instance sprung hopes for the families waiting for good news. If it were ringing, then those on board might still be alive. Probably landed somewhere else where phone networks might have reach a call connection, thus strengthen another speculation that either the jet was hijacked or held captive by a group of terrorists and made forced landing on a remote island, securing all the passengers cellphones but keeping the power on. (RELATED: Phones ringing might just be a sad sort of false hope)
That was just some speculations and that Malaysian officials finally disregarded that one. They ‘presumed’ that the ill-fated aircraft crashed into the ocean and that everyone died during that impact.
Okay, given that fact and we are not arguing with that – but we still need to find ‘hard evidence’ that could link to that scenario. Until now, only ‘objects spotted’ have been declared and none of these points to MH370.
Let’s challenge the Malaysian authorities and those involve in the search to take one more close look and verify the following suggestions.
Why not bring a cellphone in the Southern Indian Ocean that has a good network signal based from either China or Malaysia and see if these mobile phones can accept calls. The theory is, if the plane indeed went down into that part it would have probably stayed afloat for hours before it sunk into the bottom of the ocean. Relatives made several phone calls on the first couple of days the plane went missing, remember?
If the authorities can make phone calls ring on that same spot – or the caller hears ringing tones, we could surmise indeed that the plane went down in that body of water. If they can’t get signal there, then they might have been searching in the wrong place.
Until then, relatives will seek for proofs that the missing jet crashed into the ocean.
