Though Malaysian authorities definitively concluded on March 24 that Flight 370 crashed into the southern Indian Ocean, there are still a ton of unanswered questions. Sadly, a new expert claims to have some answers, and is primarily theorizing that the aircraft’s pilot flew to a dangerous altitude to knock out the 238 passengers as part of a suicide plot.
After Malaysia’s Prime Minister declared on March 24 that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and its 239 passengers perished in the Indian Ocean, experts are now focusing on why the plane diverted and crashed — and the theories aren’t encouraging. Suicide is now considered one of the most likely causes of the plane’s disappearance, as one expert claims that the pilot deliberately flew to an extreme altitude to knock out passengers before setting off on a deadly path.
Malaysian Plane Crash: Was It A Suicide?
Shortly after Flight 370’s last recorded communication, it was tracked by military radar flying between 43,000 and 45,000 ft., a source revealed to Mail Online. This altitude is extreme enough to cause people to lose consciousness due to a lack of oxygen, if it’s maintained for a long enough time.
“It was tracked flying at this altitude for 23 minutes before descending,” the anonymous expert stated. “Oxygen would have run out in 12 minutes, rendering the passengers unconscious.”
The theory is that after knocking out passengers, the pilot then diverted off course and flew south into the remote Indian Ocean.
Flight 370 ‘Ended In The Southern Indian Ocean’
That is where authorities concluded Flight 370 ended up on March 24. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced that new satellite analysis showed, without doubt, that the plane was headed towards the southern Indian Ocean, where no viable landing strips exist.
The flight “ended in the southern Indian Ocean,” a somber Razak announced. Before the sad press conference, families of the 239 passengers were alerted (cruelly, via text message) that all lives were lost in the presumed crash.
Now the story is just getting worse — 238 people may have died because of one person’s suicide plot. But while this theory may answer why the plane crashed into the Indian Ocean, it raises another question: Why did the pilot want to take his own life, and the lives of so many others?
