Kaylene Mann, in a cruel twist of fate, lost family members in both Malaysia Airlines disasters this year — first in the March disappearance of Flight 370 and now in Thursday's MH17 downing in Ukraine.

Mann, of Australia, was still mourning the deaths of her brother and sister-in-law, Rod and Mary Burrows, when she learned that the Kuala Lumpur-bound plane her stepdaughter, Maree Rizk, was on Thursday was shot out of the sky by a missile.

"It's just brought everyone, everything back," Greg Burrows, Mann's brother, told The Associated Press. "It's just ... ripped our guts again."

Rizk and her husband, Albert, were reportedly on their way back to Australia after a monthlong European vacation Thursday when a Buk missile system took down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, killing all 298 people on board.

According to the Herald Sun, the Rizks reportedly tried to switch flights to avoid a long layover in Kuala Lumpur, but were denied.
