5 Turks, 4 Americans among dead in Dutch crashAMSTERDAM – A Dutch mayor said Thursday the nine people killed when a Turkish Airlines jet slammed into a field near Amsterdam's main airport are five Turks and four Americans. Haarlemmermeer mayor Theo Weterings said the names of the victims will not be released until the bodies have been formally identified. It was not immediately clear how long that would take.
"The relatives have been informed that the missing person will be dead," he told the Associated Press. "We have arranged some help for them."
Given how the plane came apart, aka everyone who died died in the front section, first class appears to be even less appealing. Sad story through and through. Thank God for mud though. Apparently that absorbed most of the energy saving the 120+ people on the plane.
