We recently learn about the tragic story of the life Philip Wood, he was one of the 239 passengers flying aboard Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 that vanished from the radar after an hour from its departure from Kuala Lumpur, we met Mr. wood’s family in the US, and today we meet Sarah Bajc, his stricken girlfriend in Asia.
48-year-old Sarah Jane Hamil Bajc had been dating Philip Wood for a couple of year, she send a driver to pick him up at the Beijing airport over the weekend, but Philip never showed up, his fight vanished as thin air from the sky, Sarah like hundred of families are not giving up hope..
“The online site tracker through Malaysia Airlines said it was just delayed; that it took off on time but that it hadn’t landed. Then I looked at the online news, and there was the news that the plane was missing,” Bajc told CBS News’ Shannon Van Sant. “The lack of consistency of information has been incredibly frustrating and confusing. So at first it was hard to know if it was a hoax or not because the official sources weren’t saying anything. ”
“I found the link to an official press release saying they had lost contact, to come out of Malaysia Airlines, and I tried to call that number — on and off for several hours — and was unable to get through”
“Finally they contacted me since I was listed as next of kin, and they were able to tell me nothing other than the fact that they lost contact. I queried them about the various news reports that I’d seen online, first there was a reported landing, then there was a reported wreckage, then the oil spill and the passports, and they literally cannot confirm any of it,”
“I’m personally not willing to give up hope that there’s a chance we’ll find survivors, that we’ll find the plane. ere just has to be a chance.”
‘The clothes in his closet are the worst,” she said. “I open the closet and it smells like him. I often felt like we were — like it was just too perfect — how could this happen… you know, you’re almost 50 — he’d just turned 50 — and you find the love of your life, a soul-mate. How could fate have allowed him to come into my life, only to take him away again?”
