French magazine Paris Match and German newspaper Bild claims a recovered cell phone video shows the final seconds of the Germanwings crash, but officials in the French police say the accounts of the final seconds of Germanwings Flight 9525 are “completely wrong.”
In a related report by the Inquisitr, the two news reports claims the Germanwings crash video was recovered from a SIM card contained within a cell phone found at the Germanwings crash site located near a French mountainside.
If the crash video truly shows final seconds from Germanwings’ air flight, then what did they allegedly see?
“One can hear cries of ‘My God’ in several languages. Metallic banging can also be heard more than three times, perhaps of the pilot trying to open the cockpit door with a heavy object. Towards the end, after a heavy shake, stronger than the others, the screaming intensifies. Then nothing,” Paris Match reports.
They also released a Germanwings cockpit audio recording transcript from one of the A320’s two black boxes. It’s claimed the Captain told Germanwings copilot Andreas Lubitz that he needed to use the restroom a half hour after the flight took off. After the captain says the other man is “in control now,” Lubitz responds, “I hope so.”
It’s then reported that Lubitz implemented his plans immediately.
“Lubitz is alone in the cockpit. He locks the armored door with the ‘Lock’ button: it is no longer possible to open the door from the outside. The one can hear the sounds of the automatic pilot being reprogrammed to accelerate the descent, pushing the plane from 38,000 feet (11.000 meters) to 100 feet (30 meters) in a matter of minutes.”
When the captain realizes what Lubitz has done, he grabs an oxygen tank or fire extinguisher in order to break down the door. Although the captain does his best to pry open the cockpit door, within minutes, they crash into the French mountains.
According to CBS, a reporter from Paris Match claims they have “access” to the video which shows the final seconds of the Germanwings plane crash, but refuses to reveal how they came about the video. Bilk also claim that “even though the scene on board is chaotic and completely shaky, and no individual person can be identified, the accuracy of the video is beyond question.” Both Paris Match and Bild have yet to post the Germanwings crash video on their websites, or publish them anywhere else on the internet.
According to WMUR, Lt. Col. Jean-Marc Menichini is in charge of communications at the Germanwings crash site for the French police, and he claims that anyone who says they have a video which shows the final seconds of Germanwings is making “unwarranted” claims. Paris Match will only say that the the cell phone SIM card was found “among the wreckage by a source close to the investigation,” but Menichini says none of the cell phones collected at the Germanwings crash site have been sent to be analyzed by France’s Criminal Research Institute, which is located near Paris.
Menichini also insists that none of the staff members involved in the search and rescue operation have leaked a cell phone memory card to the media. French officials have also refused to confirm or deny the veracity of the partial transcript of the Germanswing flight’s cockpit recording, obtained by Bild.
