Germanwings Co-Pilot Had Suicidal Tendencies


Andreas Lubitz, the Germanwings co-pilot who killed himself when he purposefully drove a plane carrying 149 other people into a mountain in the French Alps last week, had been treated for "suicidal tendencies", a German prosecutor said Monday.

"Several years ago before obtaining his pilot’s license, the co-pilot was in a long period of psychotherapeutic treatment for noticeable suicidal tendencies," Ralf Herrenbrueck explained.

Investigators have searched his apartment, but no suicide note was found. The plane´s voice recorder indicated that Lubitz was alone in the cockpit at the time of the crash while the other pilot frantically banged on the cockpit door.

  Worrying ...  
how the airline companies (and other transport firms) are not fully checking out a persons medical and psychological background thoroughly when they are in charge of vehicles transporting hundreds of people. Had a thorough review of Lubitz´s medical records been done, this would have been averted.
