General : 45 Families Of MH17 Crash Victims Provide Details, DNA Samples

PUTRAJAYA, July 24 (Bernama) — Families of the 45 Malaysians who perished in the Malaysia Airlines (MAS), MH17 crash in Ukraine have given their details and DNA samples to the relevant authorities for the purpose of ascertaining the identity of their loved ones.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam said two more families were undergoing the same process.

“There were victims who had been living abroad but still maintained ties with Malaysia, making the number of families who have to undergo the Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) ante mortem data collection and DNA process to 47,” he said in a statement today.

According to him, MAS had established 43 of the recovered remains to be that of Malaysians.

Meanwhile, he said that Serdang Hospital and Putrajaya Hospital had mobilised their medical teams to provide treatment to victims’ family members when needed.

“Up to now, the hospitals have not received any referral,” he said, adding that six teams would be assigned to render aid to victims’ families at the airport entry via which the bodies would be carried in upon arrival.

The Boeing 777-200 jet was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it crashed in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine near the Russian border on Thursday.

It was carrying 298 people – 283 passengers and 15 crew.
