Malaysia Airlines flight MH370: All 239 Passengers Now Presumed Dead–Beamed information from Satellite data to a United Kingdom Satellite Company has indicated that the lost Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 had crashed into a remote corner of the Indian Ocean confirming fears that there is no hope that anyone on the plane had survived. It was claimed that the aircraft last recorded its position as being in the middle of the Indian Ocean and that was where the last contact was made, around West of Perth.
It is not immediately known wheter the aircraft disappeared following fire emergency while on air or it had landed on the ocean directly following a crashed or mid-air mishap.
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak summoning an emergency news press conference, confirming that all those on the flight have lost their lives as developing news has now traced the plane into the Indian Ocean, indicating 17days of disapperance with any sign of an hijack or redirection to any destination had brought about unavoidable conviction that all lives on the plane had been lost.
According to him, satellite data provided by a UK company, Inmarsat, showed the plane’s last recorded position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth.
“This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites,” Mr Razak said.

“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.”
Already, relatives of all the passengers inside the plane have been contacted with Beijing now thrown into mourning as distressed relatives were being informed of the news .
“Some people were in tears, others are helping those struggling and a woman is screaming in absolute anguish. It’s very tough to watch,” Skynews reporter Jonathan Samuels said.

There were text messages sent to relatives by Malaysia Airlines intimating them of development and preparing them for the worse case scenario of lack of hope on the outcome of the on-going investigation.
Malaysia Airlines told relatives they should “assume beyond any reasonable doubt” that all those on the plane have been lost.
“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,” the airline said in a text message to relatives.
“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.”
The flight vanished from civilian radar screens less than an hour after take-off from Kuala Lumpur on March 8 with 239 people on board.
No confirmed sighting of the plane has been made since, but debris has been found in remote waters off Australia which might be part of the missing plane.
The confirmation came after Sky sources said families of those on-board will be taken from Beijing to Australia.
An Australian navy ship is close to finding possible debris from the plane after a mounting number of sightings of floating objects some 1550 miles west of Perth.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said the entire crew of HMAS Success is keeping a lookout for the objects.
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott told parliament: “I caution … that we don’t know whether any of these objects are from MH370, they could be flotsam.
“Nevertheless, we are hopeful that we can recover these objects soon and they will take us a step closer to resolving this tragic mystery.”
