    Over 24 hours after this tragedy you really should have updated the info:- Senior Pilot dead, 24 year old female military medical student died from injuries and hypothermia.

    May they + Rest In Peace +

    4 injured brought to hospital.

    It took well over 6 hours for the crash site to be located due to poor co-ordination of the various rescue services involved in the search, now the political blame game starts as to just who was responsible for co-coordinating rescue efforts. Ultimately the blame lands at “Copy & Paste” Ponta’s table, he needs to resign before more government foul-ups are the cause of more loss of life.
