Update: Philippines government claims that the plane wreckage found is not flight MH370. Read more here on this latest development.
Last March, a Beijing-bound Boeing 777 carrying 239 passengers crashed, and caused a large scale hunt for the wreckage.
Now a teenager hunting birds in the jungles of the Philippine island Tawi Tawi is said to have found the wreckage many believe to be flight MH370.
Hi uncle Jamil Omar of Borneo was the one who reported the find, since his nephew has no access to newspapers or TV and therefore didn’t know what it was. His uncle said:
“There was a skeleton still in the pilot’s seat. The pilot had his safety belt on and the communication gear attached to his head and ears.”
Numerous additional skeletons and bones were found in the fuselage and scattered in the jungle.
From the New York Post:
A teenager hunting for birds in the jungle of a Philippine island claims to have stumbled upon a fuselage “full of skeletons” and a Malaysian flag, and authorities believe it could be from missing Flight MH370.
The coastal wreckage in Tawi Tawi was under investigation by local authorities in Malaysia’s Sabah region Monday.
The finding was reported by Jamil Omar of Borneo, 46, who says his nephew made the grim discovery in September, but didn’t realize what it was as he has no access to television or newspapers.
