Two doctors ruled Germanwings co-pilot was unfit for work on day of crash - but he kept it secret from airline

Killer co-pilot Andreas Lubitz was signed off by 2 different doctors for the day of the Germanwings disaster but failed to tell his employers, it has been claimed. The claims come after it emerged Lubitz may have crashed his plane due to fears he was about to lose his licence on medical grounds.

Investigators revealed today that medical sign-off notes were found at Lubitz's home - including two for the day of the crash - and Dusseldorf University Hospital confirmed he had been a patient there over the past two months, although it would not disclose his condition. 

Investigators at the crash site today revealed they have retrieved more than 400 body parts belonging to the victims - but have not found an intact body. Police have now asked friends and families of the deceased to provide DNA samples as they start the grim task of identifying those who lost their lives 

 

Described as a man whose life-long obsession had been to become a pilot, it has been suggested he may have feared his flying licence might not be renewed on medical grounds.

Friends have told how Lubitz had a life-long obsession with flight, posting pictures of planes all over his walls as a child and taking gliding lessons at the age of just 14. 
Lubitz had built his whole life around becoming a pilot - with one friend saying 'would have died' if he had not have passed his flying exams - and even became a flight attendant while he waited to start his training.

He was facing a potential medical examination that could have seen his pilot's licence removed and it is thought he may have feared mental or other health problems would bring an end to his dream.

Former BA pilot Alastair Rosenschein said pilots of Lubitz's age face regular medicals as well as simulator tests and can be grounded if they fail to pass. He told MailOnline: 'He may have known that his career was already over. He may have known that the end was in sight.'

Germanwings said later that the company had not been aware of Lubitz’s sicknote. In a statement, the company said: 'Germanwings would like to clarify that no medical note was presented to the firm for this day'.
German police are now investigating whether Lubitz had stopped taking any medication he was on and have questioned chemists at the Apotheke am Breidenplatz close to Lubitz's Dusseldorf flat.

Lubitz regularly collected a prescription from the pharmacy, MailOnline understands. A chemist at the Apotheke confirmed she had spoken to the police but declined to offer any details.

The chemist told MailOnline: 'The police have visited the pharmacy this morning. But I cannot talk about anything that occurs inside the pharmacy. We are required to protect all information about patients.

People are not meant to die 💀 like this. This is so painful. May their soul rest in peace. Amen.

May God help us all. It's just so sad that this happened. The mind of one another that we can't read or know is to show God's superiority over all. Wish we could read our minds, really wish we could. *sober*

When you see this guys face. You know he is capable of doing this evil.

AQO said...

Even as it's unethical, couldn't the hospital let the airline know about this guy's condition? It'd have saved us from this.




Jesus is Lord.

All this is just story.

Why drag others under with you. There are other mmillion ways to die honourably, THIS IS CERTAINLY NOT ONE OF THEM.

RIP to the dead.

Just read on "Time" that German Privacy Laws allow him to hide his condition from his employers. TF?!

Holy SHIT!!! Two Docs just SNITCHED.
The Company is going DOWN cos all am seeing in the Blue Crystal Ball as accurately revealed by a scion of Octopus Paul is Lawsuits Lawsuits Lawsuits and Bankruptcy Bankruptcy Bankruptcy.
I think the Company more than deserve the coming downfall (a product of their negligence) which is gonna be harder than Humpty Dumpty who sat on a High Wall, with the only difference being that nobody knew till date who pushed Dude Humpty off the wall that he couldn't be put together again.
What a HARD Fall.

very very scary to know Pilots can slip through the system and perform their duty even when unfit

Of course, it will be difficult Infact impossible to find an intact body with the impact with which the plane hit the rocks. It will all be mangled limbs everywhere. Plenty 'were' people everywhere who have refused to go alone, but decide to take innocent souls with them.

Linda watch it in a movie once, where an airline place or frame all d blame on d pilot just to avoid law suit, trust me my instinct tells me, dats what is happening rite now, don't believe this story 1bit. The guy is been framed to tk d fall which he already has in a plane crash....

Anonymous said...

It is done to stop it from ever happening again. This is what civilized society does. This is why Nigeria is not a civilized society!!!

Chinny Nn. said...

Terrible. How could he hide the med reports from them n fly just like that? Aren't those things supposed to be checked by the authorities?

princess said...

Don't believe he could hide medics result from d airline, was d hosp his personal one?

Richard Afon Yinkå said...

Richard Afon Yinkå said...

U take note too... Lol

Flora Akunaeziri said...

Dis is rubbish.. Y didn't d doctors send d report 2 his employers? Were dey rili expecting him 2 tk it himself? Wat nonsense. Dat retard as far as I'm concerned was a phucking terrorist, dey can say all d nonsense dey want.

Anonymous said...

If these stories prove true, aren't there laws in psychiatry about denouncing homicidal patients?

RareSpecieZ, reading your posts is like deciphering a bad riddle. You can't use normal English instead of this faux American slang you write?

Otuanwan Bassey said...

Why did the doctors not send a copy of this report to his workers knowing he was a working pilot.

ADEWUMI OYINADE said...

This story seems wrong. ..I cant just place it

He jst decided 2 waist d lives of innocent pple all cos of his own selfish interest, may God punish him even in death

This can only come from someone who doesn't live in Germany. We have human rights here and the Hague isn't far. No matter how sad this is,his personal rights comes first and that's fine like that. The lost souls are in God's hands, those left behind God is with them. I don't justify his action.

Well they need to know who to hold liable for damages, I just pity the co-pilot's insurers, they might just cease to exist after they are done settling.
