The devastating tragedy of flight MH17 took the lives of 298 people, including 80 small children and 3 infants. Of those children, three of them were Australian siblings traveling with their grandfather. So sad.
Flight MH17 was carrying 80 children when it was allegedly shot down and destroyed by Russian rebels on Thursday, July 17. The horrific incident killed all of the plane’s passengers, including an entire Indonesian family and three Australian siblings who were on their way home, accompanied only by their grandfather. The plane’s wreckage — including body parts of the passengers — reportedly spreads over a 9 mile area.
