I am sitting here in my hotel room not believing what I am reading here! All of you who wrote nasty remarks should be ashamed of yourself. Can you even imagine what it must have been like for those people who were interviewed? They were actually sitting in a ball of fire. Not knowing if you were going to die. And most are still suffering mental and phyiscal pain.
And so what if Mr. Diaz came off sounding like a hero. I feel anyone who saves even one human life, is a hero in my book. Especailly if I was the one who was saved. And if anyone of you dont feel the same way, then you should all be ashamed of yourselves.
Everett wa,..you dont think their lives have been changed? Trust me pal, when you face death head-on, your life DOES change! So if you have no knowledge in that area, keep remarks like that yourself!
Singapore Air..even after you taking back what you said that Mr Diaz should have died, you should be banned from this forum! You are taking sides in defense of the ALL MIGHTY Singapore Airlines, and putting no value on human life. Shame on you for such an uncaring comment!
Adam84..why is it so hard to believe that a F/A was sitting there like a "dazed deer?" In training we're trained for a survivable plane crash, in a controled enviorment. Do you think they hurl us down a runway at 200 miles an hour, blow us up, set a few people on fire, then tell us to evac? I would like to believe, that with all my training, that if God for bid I was ever in a situation like that, I would keep my head on straight, and be calm. But, I am human, and one can never be sure of how you would react when fear takes over. Especailly when you see fire and death all around you. So dont be so quick not to believe that the F/A didnt freeze up.
Jaysit..your comment surprises me too, coming from a lawyer. I thought you would have been one of the many suing for the pax.
And did you folks ever think the reason why the AMERICANS were interviewd, is that 48 Hours is an AMERICAN produced show...DUH! Let your other Countries do their own show, and I am sure lots of them will come off as heros, too. Quoted from Jaysit "As usual it was shown from the perspective of a bunch of loud-mouth Americans. Its like one of those Hollywood crappola movies where the good-ol-boys saved everyone's red/brown/asian/african arse. I was ashamed to be American watching this drivel." Leave AMERICA now if you dont like it JAYSIT! Or anyone else living in this country who has ANTI-AMERICAN REMARKS!
