Germanwings Crash Video: Is There Footage of Cabin Chaos?

By    |   Wednesday, 01 Apr 2015 10:05 AM

Reports that a passenger used a cell phone to record a video in the cabin of Germanwings Flight 9525 as it was about to crash in the French Alps are unlikely to be true, French prosecutors said on Wednesday.

"So far, no videos were used in the crash investigation," Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin told CNN. "A person who has such a video needs to immediately give it to the investigators."

Of the cell phones recovered at the crash site, Robin said, "All are for now being kept at Seynes-Les-Alpes. If people at the site have picked up mobile phones, I am not aware of it," he told Reuters.

On Tuesday, French magazine Paris Match and German daily Bild claimed to have "obtained a video taken during the final seconds of the fated Germanwings flight 4U9525 and found among the wreckage by a source close to the investigation."

"The scene was so chaotic that it was hard to identify people, but the sounds of the screaming passengers made it perfectly clear that they were aware of what was about to happen to them," Paris Match.

"One can hear cries of 'My God' in several languages. Metallic banging can also be heard more than three times, perhaps of the pilot trying to open the cockpit door with a heavy object. Towards the end, after a heavy shake, stronger than the others, the screaming intensifies. Then nothing."

On Wednesday morning, deputy editor of Paris Match Regis le Sommier told NBC's "Today" show that he is convinced of the authenticity of the video.

Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz and the 149 other people on board Germanwings Flight 9525 died on March 24 after he reportedly locked the pilot out of the cockpit and downed the plane.
