Co-Pilot Deliberately crashed plane into Alps says prosecutor

Published

on

The prosecutor has confirmed the Co-pilot a German national deliberately crashed his plane into the Alps. 

Once the pilot left the cockpit to use the toilet the co-pilot activated the descent button and refused to open the cockpit door to the pilot. 

The pilot attempted in vain to force entry back into the cockpit, and attempted to bang on the door to re-gain entry. 

The Co-Pilot has been named as Andreas Lubitz, 28 and he was alive until the final impact. 

The Airbus 320 which was travelling from Barcelona to Duesseldorf hit a mountain killing all 144 passengers and six crew members.

The pilot attempted for eight-minutes to gain entry in to the cockpit. .

The prosecutor Mr Robin “We hear the pilot ask the co-pilot to take control of the plane and we hear at the same time the sound of a seat moving backwards and the sound of a door closing,” 

“At that moment, the co-pilot is controlling the plane by himself. While he is alone, the co-pilot presses the buttons of the flight monitoring system to put into action the descent of the aeroplane. 

“This action on the altitude controls can only be deliberate.”

“The most plausible interpretation is that the co-pilot through a voluntary act had refused to open the cabin door to let the captain in. He pushed the button to trigger the aircraft to lose altitude. He operated this button for a reason we don’t know yet, but it appears that the reason was to destroy this plane.”

Air traffic controllers became aware of a situation and began making repeated attempts with the aircraft.

Nine-year-old boy locked in safe during game of hide and seek

Published

A Nine-year-old boy became trapped in a safe during a game of hide and seek at his grandfathers home in Berlin.

He had to be rescued by firefighters after he hid inside the sade. He was playing with his little brother at home in Lichterfelde, Berlin.

Believing he has found the perfect hiding place the boy went inside the unused safe and closed the door locking himself in.

The boy was playing with his little brother at the home in Lichterfelde, Berlin, when he found the ultimate hiding place.

His hiding place was eventually found but his grandfather was the only person who knew the code for the safe and he was away.

They could not get in contact with him and called for help from the local fire brigade.

They tested family birthdays for three hours in the hope they’d crack the code while pumping oxygen into the safe via a tiny crack.

As a specialist team arrived who was able to cut the safe open they managed to enter a successful six-digit code.

Firefighters say the child remained calm throughout the ordeal and was shocked but unharmed.

Berlin firefighter Thomas Kirstein said it was a happy ending and super early Christmas present.

Hopefully, he won’t be hiding in there again and in future, they’ll be keeping the door shut because this incident could have been very different.
