Germanwings plane: Mobile phone video reveals screaming passengers

Harrowing mobile phone footage taken on board the doomed Germanwings flight has recorded the devastating moment that screaming passengers knew they were going to die, it has been claimed. The video, reportedly found amid the wreckage of the crash, allegedly captures the sound of terrified passengers crying ‘Oh God’ as the plane plunged into the French Alps last week, killing all 150 people on board. The clip, said to be just a few seconds long, was reportedly taken from a memory card which was found at the crash scene by a source close to the investigation.

According to two European newspapers who claim to have seen the footage, cries of ‘oh God’ can be heard in several different languages as chaos breaks out inside the cabin. They claim that metallic banging can then be heard, as more screaming echoes through the aircraft. Both papers suggest the banging could be the sound of the frantic captain attempting to break open the cockpit door with an axe, as Andreas Lubitz set the aircraft onto a devastating collision course into the mountain.

German daily Bild and French magazine Paris Match said their reporters were shown the video after it was found on a memory chip that could have come from a mobile phone inside the aircraft. Lieutenant Colonel Jean-Marc Menichini, a high ranking official involved in the recovery operation, categorically denied that any mobile phone footage had been found by investigators at the site. But Paris Match said the footage, thought to have been filmed from the rear of the plane, was found ‘among the wreckage by a source close to the investigation’.
