Relative of Passenger Demands Clarity on Fate of the Flight

CHINA-MALAYSIA-MALAYSIAAIRLINES-TRANSPORT-ACCIDENT

Confirmation that flight 370 “ended” in the Indian Ocean has brought no closure for the Chinese families waiting in Kuala Lumpur. One woman has spoken exclusively to CCTV’s James Chau, saying the presumed fate of the mystery flight has only brought “confusion” not “clarity”. For reasons of privacy, she asked us to disguise her identity in this interview.

The relatives and loved ones of those on board the plane are overcome with emotion. They have dealt with anger, fear, and flat out sadness. CCTV is joined by James Halpern, an experienced grief counselor who has responded in the wake of disasters including the shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school here in the United States. He is the author of “Disaster Mental Health: Theory and Practice.”
