MOSCOW, July 18 (RIA Novosti) – An Australian family from Queensland has been affected by both Malaysia Airlines tragedies this year, the Sydney Morning Herald reported Friday.
According to the newspaper report, Kaylene Mann lost her brother and sister-in-law when Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 mysteriously disappeared in March this year.
Kaylene Mann’s step-daughter and her husband Albert were on board flight MH17, which crashed in the Donetsk Region in Ukraine on Thursday.
