Flight 370 passenger’s relative: ‘All lives are lost’: http://rtvote.com/1diyqYr
On Monday, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said that missing Flight 370 has gone down over the southern part of the Indian Ocean, ending all hopes that some people on the flight might have survived. The prime minister has asked reporters to give the families their privacy. British satellites analyzed the data captured over the southern Indian Ocean that led to this conclusion. Both Australian and Chinese officials had spotted debris earlier Monday in the same area. Satellites and searches continued to be trained in that area until more leads to the missing flight are found.

At around 2:55am this morning, a, eight-car passenger train derailed at Chicago O’Hare International Airport. The train was pulling into the station and apparently failed to stop because it was going faster than it should have been; it then jumped off of the rails and hit the escalator. Larry Langford, a spokesman for the Chicago Fire Department, said that six people were seriously injured and twenty-six other passengers suffered lesser injuries.

Eight people have been confirmed to have been killed in the mudslide that hit Snohmish County, a rural county in Washington State, on Saturday. Dozens more are missing as the chance of rescue crews pulling more survivors has dwindled. 30 homes have been destroyed and the numbers of critically injured people are also increasing. Rescuers had hope Saturday night when they heard voices coming from the debris field, but darkness coupled with dangerous conditions forced rescue workers to forfeit efforts; the next morning, the voices had stopped. Searches will continue until all missing people are accounted for.
