Letter: Air tragedy.
READING about the Madrid air crash in Thursday's Daily Post, I could not help but shed a tear for those that lost their lives, but even more for their families.
I would like to add my condolences to those voiced by Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Steve Rotheram, and I am proud to live in a city where the Union Flag is flown at half mast in memory of people who are from another country.
It must be devastating for Madrid, particularly as children were involved, but I was pleased to read that three children were among the survivors.
Hopefully, with the help of supportive friends and family, along with counselling, they will be able to move on from this terrible event.
No doubt there will be an investigation into the reasons for the crash and planes will be made safer so that incidences like this do not re-occur.
But, in the meantime, my thoughts will be with those who died and those who lost loved ones on that fateful day.
